Really sad news on the death of Tomaž Šalamun yesterday. A short piece in memorial up on 3am magazine now http://www.3ammagazine.com/3am/tomazsalamun1941-2014/
Someone took a picture of me reading at Cabaret Hrabal at the Horse Hospital. I am probably saying something about the trash compactors of Hrabal and my life as an endless train of nomadic travel (in body and spirit). Part of my ongoing manuscript Play Yr Kardz Right.
It was an absolutely terrific night! SOOOOOOOOO happy to have my poem commissioned for Hrabal night at Horse Hospital in London and to perform with awesome poets, actors, and artists. I love Hrabal. So many great performers/readers, including: Eva Danickova, Josh Alexander, Lucinka Eisler, Stephen Emmerson, Tom Jenks, Zoe Skoulding, and
Innovative British poetry from Tim Atkins and Jeff Hilson. Terrific. They make me believe poetry is alright again! a great reading in London as part of the Auld Enemies project by SJ Fowler.
SJ Fowler organised it all. WOW! What a night!! And lots more poets reading on the night . . . check ’em out over at youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om1Qq2Ekhhk&index=1&list=UUH-fLGyt8YZrtNctaU1OauQ
