Two Poetry Videos

Saturday, November 17, 2018

I arrived home tonight to find that Phil Taggert has sent me a link to the video recording he made of my reading in Ventura on Thursday evening.

You can also watch KCET’s “Venice” (Season 3, Episode 5 of “Lost Los Angeles”) by going to the following link:

I want to thank Elena Secota for presenting me in a poetry reading with Leon Martell and Beth Rusico on Friday at the Rapp Saloon. That was an equally fine occasion as the reading in Ventura. This afternoon, I gave a short talk about the early days of Beyond Baroque in the company of S.A. Griffin, Pam Ward, Suzanne Lummis, Laurel Ann Bogen, and Jack Skelley, Lummis gave a great reading of Gil Cuadros’s poem, “Sight.” It is a poem that deserve the same audience as those who appreciate Derek Jarman’s “Blue” or “Angels in America.”
