June13 & 14: two events in two days, hosted, respectively, at Jules Nyquist's Poetry Playhouse and Merimee Moffit's (2 Thursdays a month) Poetry Salon, two new (to me) poetry venues that I'd made note of but hadn't gotten around to covering yet. Tonight, June 13: Michael C Ford at Poetry Playhouse; tomorrow, June 14 at Poetry Salon. (image from Facebook »)
Updates can fly right past me, soon lost in the crowd on cyberspace platforms, in networks, not enough detail stuck in memory to search. Two notices two such venues about the same visiting writer on consecutive days (announcements and appearances) constitute a powerful reminder and double twofer. Neither time not space permit expanding at length, perhaps later. Names and links should suffice to get you started.
Tonight: A-I-R C-O-N-D-I-T-I-O-N-E-D comfort and a special treat at POETRY PLAYHOUSE - a tiny 5 minute play by visiting playwright Michael C Ford, "The Monologue Between Caryl Chessman and Jayne Mansfield."
