Author of the lyrics to Sun Ra’s composition “Love in Outer Space,” he has also recorded with the saxophonists and composers Ornette Coleman and David Murray and the cornetist and composer Butch Morris. He is the author of ’Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky: Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child (2009), and wrote and produced an award-winning two-hour documentary on the African American beat poet Bob Kaufman for National Public Radio and the Pacifica Foundation.

Most recently he became the first fellow of the Lost and Found, the CUNY Poetics Document Initiative at the Center for the Humanities.  Kingfish, My Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish Kingfish, my Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish, in the darkness of the country, slight smile around his perpendicular cigar. Brown face lost in the darkness, dark pants fading into the black, the white apron an apparition, a ghost of service: soda and potato chips for the boy, a swab of white cloth across  the hardwood hull of the bar that was indeed at sea for that voyage of the day to night to end in the death of dawn. Beer chasers after the Tanqueray argument, the jukebox so loud the room is bouncing, in the window screeching tires of 450 horsepowers burning eight cylinders of rubber, the smell drifts in and outside the door, becomes a smoke cloud rambling down main street. Let the good times roll for the sixty minute man, lovers too young to be in love -- Afro Mona Lisa laughing out loud all up in your face. Andrei Codrescu was born in Sibiu, Romania. He has written poetry, novels, essays, and film. He won the Peabody Award and was a National Book Award finalist for poetry. From 1983 to 1996 he edited the multivolume publication Exquisite Corpse: A Journal of Books and Ideas, and he started to edit the ongoing website Exquisite Corpse: A Journal of Life and Letters in 1996. He taught poetry and comparative literature at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Baltimore, and Louisiana State University, where he retired in 2010 as MacCurdy Professor Emeritus. His recent books include Bibliodeath: My Archives (with Life in Footnotes) (2012) and The Art of Forgetting: New Poems (2016). Codrescu was also a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered from 1983 to 2016. the new golden wretched Google-worthy immigrants are to be foundsay the fat natives wrapped in fur & fearin the 1938-1948 wave and the post-commieera 1989-2001 when politics was clear after that as Gogol Bordello sings"we are coming rougher" we walk on desert rocks   come out of tunnelswe left our kin in a storm of shards barrel bombs that tore up legs eyes arms hair   a rain of meat that we once called "love"now mud air mushrooms roots grubsthose refugees of two decades agowho came under the umbrella of idealismby boat and plane and real politikdo not want us   they have forgotten "we come rougher"unwanted    parcelled out like fuel for the enginesof power's calculated mercybut "rough" is just another texture of despair whether it's 1941, 2015 or sometime imminent       and new history doesn't take vacationsit only stops to take a breath to changebibs continents and menus before it eats again     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SU,SA;UNTIL=20260601T235900; David Henderson and Andrei Codrescu

The video begins at dawn with the raising of the flag on the Zócalo's prominent central flagpole, surveys the sweeping movements of the pole's shadow and the patterns of movement of people within the massive plaza, and concludes at dusk, when the flag is brought back down. Within the context of Audubon Terrace's historic Beaux-Arts architecture and its role as a cultural and educational hub, this screening juxtaposes two diverging models of open urban spaces and their social uses.     Dia at the Hispanic Society TURE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Screening: Francis Alÿs, Zócalo, 22 May 1999, 1999

10/06/2008 00:00 10/06/2008 23:45 Europe/London Reading-Performance: Caroline Bergvall, My Chaucer, 2008, with Mario Diaz de Leon Dia at the Hispanic Society Broadway between 155th and 156th Streets New York City Caroline Bergvall and Mario Diaz de León present the reading-performance My Chaucer. Splicing together present-day English with French, Middle English, Norse, lost Latin, and some altogether untraceable words, while quoting Emma Goldman, BBC communications, and other sources, Bergvall's contemporary tales feast on a strange, ill-assorted Euro-lingo. The rich palate of Chaucer's medieval Canterbury Tales is the active backdrop for pointed or humorous commentaries on today's corruptions, pleasures, and blind spots; meanwhile Diaz de León's music, abstractly evoking medieval and contemporary elements, supports and engages in its own dialogue with the text. Melodies are performed on 36-string zither and textural noise guitar. A screwed-up insectile funk and protest mood emerges from this offbeat carnival of songs.   Dia at the Hispanic Society TURE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Reading-Performance: Caroline Bergvall, My Chaucer, 2008, with Mario Diaz de Leon

A diverse group of poets will present short pieces at various locations on the outdoor plaza of Audubon Terrace, where they will be joined by a group of students from PS4. Also accompanied by dancers, Buddhists, an opera singer, and a life drawing class, this mute and active gathering will demonstrate and celebrate the collective power of silence and the capacity of an unvoiced poem to serve the communal purposes of public life. Participants include poets Charles Bernstein, Stephanie Gray, Tim Liu, Monica De la Torre, and Rachel Zolf, Christine Hou, and Julie Patton, dancer-choreographer Christine Elmo, The Village Zendo, and soprano Juliana Snapper.

14/10/2010 18:30 14/10/2010 20:00 Europe/London Taylor Mead and John Giorno Thursday, October 14, 2010, 6:30 pm535 West 22nd St. New York City Introduction by Vincent Katz Taylor Mead Poet, performer, actor, and painter Taylor Mead was born in 1924, Grosse Point, Michigan. He has been defying the establishment for over half a century and remains one of the brightest stars of the American underground. A force within the Beat movements in both San Francisco and New York, he began writing and performing his particular brand of raunchy, irreverent, and often hilarious poetry in the early 1950s. Between 1963 and 1969, Mead starred in numerous Andy Warhol films, including Tarzan and Jane Regained … Sort Of (1963); Taylor Mead’s Ass (1964);The Nude Restaurant (1967); Imitation of Christ (1967); and Lonesome Cowboys (1969). He has appeared more recently in Rebecca Horn’s Buster’s Bedroom (1991), Jim Jarmusch’s Coffee and Cigarettes (2003), and is the subject of William A. Kirkley’s documentary Excavating Taylor Mead (2005). Mead continues to publish poetry and performs weekly at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, captivating audiences with his wry, dramatically vivid comments on sex, death, genius, and his own unique celebrity.   Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf? —Taylor Mead   John Giorno John Giorno was born in 1936 in Brooklyn and grew up in Roslyn Heights, New York. Giorno graduated from Columbia University in 1958. Four years later, he met Andy Warhol, who became an important influence for Giorno's developments on poetry, performance, and recordings. He famously was the subject of Andy Warhol’s first film, Sleep. He has collaborated with William Burroughs, John Ashbery, Ted Berrigan, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Robert Rauschenberg, and Robert Mapplethorpe, as well as Rirkirt Tirvanija, Pierre Huyghe, Elizabeth Peyton, and Ugo Rondinone, who is his partner. He is the author of ten books, including You Got to Burn to Shine, Cancer in my Left Ball, Grasping at Emptiness, Suicide Sutra, and has produced 59 LPs, CDs, tapes, cassettes, videopaks, and DVDs for Giorno Poetry Systems. He founded the AIDS Treatment Project and is an important force in the development of Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

Her first three books of poems were striking entries in the annals of poet-run presses: The Irony Of The Leash, 1978, Jim Brodey Books; A Fresh Young Voice From The Plains, 1981, Power Mad Books; and Sappho’s Boat, Little Caesar Press, 1982.

Her most recent book of poems is Sorry, Tree, 2007, from Wave Books. She has also published a book of stories, two novels—most recently, Inferno, from Or Book —and The Importance Of Being Iceland: Travel Essays In Art from Semiotext(e).

He attended the Bronx High School of Science and Harvard University from which he graduated in 1972. He is the author of 40 books, ranging from large-scale collections of poetry and essays to pamphlets, libretti, translations, and collaborations. Recent works include: All the Whiskey in Heaven: Selected Poems (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2010); Girly Man (University of Chicago Press, 2006); With Strings (University of Chicago Press, 2001); and Republics of Reality: 1975-1995 (Sun & Moon Press, 2000). He has published two books of essays: A Poetics (Harvard University Press, 1992); Content's Dream: Essays 1975-1984 (Sun & Moon Press, 1986, 1994; reprinted by Northwestern University Press, 2001); and one essay/poem collection: My Way: Speeches and Poems (University of Chicago Press, 1999). In spring 2011 Bernstein will publishThe Attack of the Difficult Poems: Essays & Inventions (University of Chicago Press, 2011). Autonomy Is Jeopardy I hate artifice. All thesecontraptions so many barriersagainst what otherwise can'tbe contested, so much seeming sameness in a jello ofsquirms. Poetry scares me. Imean its virtual (or ventriloquized)anonymity – no protection, nobulwark to accompany its pervasivepurposivelessness, its accretiveacceleration into what may ormay not swell. Eyes demandcounting, the nowhere seen everywherebehaved voicelessness everyone is clawingto get a piece of. Shudderall you want it won'tmake it come any fasterlast any longer: the pumpthat cannot be dumped. from Charles Bernstein's All the Whiskey in Heaven: Selected Poems (Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2010) Tim Peterson (Trace) Tim Peterson (Trace) is a poet, critic, editor, curator, and octopus. The author of Since I Moved In (Chax Press), Peterson also has a new chapbook, VIOLET SPEECH, forthcoming from 2nd Avenue Poetry this fall. Peterson editsEOAGH: A Journal of the Arts and curates a number of events in the NYC area including the talk series Quips & Cranks (with Vincent Katz) at The School of Visual Arts, the Zinc Bar poetry series, and the TENDENCIES: Poetics & Practice talks series on queer theory and the manifesto at CUNY Graduate Center. from VIOLET SPEECH At this stage, total estimate for poem construction is $9,800 plus tax. Installation of the Rothko paintings may cost extra due to shipping-related precautions. Importation of specific breeds of violets adds possible embodied energy, with additional costs anticipated for continued maintenance as spring impinges on us, opening the poem like a bloom that only appears fictitious. In order to proceed, we need to have 30 percent of the allegory provided up front. We look forward to working with you and helping you take your poem to the next level, loosening up that frame which could have doomed you to a tragic metaphor: Orpheus, Electra, Pandora, et al. Once the initial design phase has been completed, installation of poem on stainless steel or concrete requires an additional two months but installation on wind and running water is negligible. Strategic alternation of metaphors of artistic genius and altruistic service allows us to speak through you, actually providing impetus for the poems but not, you’d argue, making the real design decisions. Have you been subordinated to the engineering process at this point, your you being written like an accident? Are you a factory poet? As long as you contribute an appropriately large deposit up front, we won’t need to answer that question. Sincerely, War of the Worlds Design Systems.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Charles Bernstein and Tim Peterson (Trace)

MENAGERIE Birds call like lasers sainted creatures whose flesh’s funereal aurafills the decorated shed. A more extreme versionof passing out of objecthood moves us to applaud.We blended our voices to make overtonesand the dogs barked by instinct or mechanization or both.Whether it is thirty chickens rushing out or one rat murdering anotheran animal’s worldview is of consequence. Someone said it was all very lord of the fliesbut it was more like direct action in a mall.It was like winged ants flying into our eyes.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Ann Lauterbach and Paul Foster Johnson

Idea of Steve Too bad I have this idea of himbased on someone else, named Matt(another uncluttered name), whom I dislikedfor no reason other than having once thoughthe misprised me, which I didn’t really believe. (Whew!)This is getting complicated, like always.Let’s leave Steve at the wellhead of a dream,where he belongs, and belongs also to otherswho will make fun of him and gradually come to despisethemselves for doing so. He was a nice person and besidesdidn’t deserve our unremitting attention, thoughhis bumper stickers indicated otherwise.

SCALE 1In my youth, I craved the small picture,the autistic strung-out hearts of ivy, star jasmine, the “on and on” without budging. I liked Russian icons, circleswithin circles inthe virgin’s halo, the way her cloak matched the sky which was not the sky at all. 2Now I see that the outsized “personalities” of our day, the Brad and Angies, have the blurred, grainy textureindicative of stretching.

The pay phone, a portal through which voices connect in sometimes pleasing ways. The hood of the half booth as private as a homemade sex tape. I, the relic on the street, born during the time of paper and print. My replacements, attached to wireless networks, ride herd down the sidewalk. Holding close, slowing down to read the sign in the booth, tear off a tab of “I will post your flyers.”University bus drives by: sadness ensues. My days are spooked by the rotary ringtone of a cell phone ghosting a black enamel phone, heavy, and tethered to earth: that is a desk, that is gravity. To open the folding door of the booth is to enter into a cabinet of curiosities: a carnival wagon. The rotary dial is a greased wheel of chance. In airport corridors clusters of laptops and pay phones await flight. A stranger no longer taps on the glass. Feathers are bits of bird. Eggs, an afterthought for this observer.Once the neighbors played a recording of falling coins or stuck a pin into the receiver for free calls. This was in the past, although that is clear, I say it for myself before the time caught in the mirror turns amber. Entering the carny wagon of childhood games: nickel pitch, shooting gallery, balloon burst, cranes/diggers, weight and age barkers. I prize gun-shaped cigarette lighters, girlie cards, switchblade combs, and stuffed bears. I do not prize plastic poodles. Now, I prize grainy vintage porn and airbrushed nudie calendars, or return to the flea market to gaze at a portrait of a bored couple in the 1920s posing with a headstone or a Chinese tea box full of loose sequins in rotting paper or a Buddha head a Vietnam vet souvenir or shreds of Nepali armor, or a Weimar Republic glossy of nightclub performers or journal, in English and Arabic. Translations of homilies. I bid on these tatters. Separated coffee and milk at peace inside the cup on the street. Hard core cooing, brooding, in the back of the railroad apartment. A pillow propped against the boutique door. White wing spreads out from back of the locust tree.Cup in the booth, finger streaks of Irish Rose on the walls. Tintype of man with hand on his heart. My other hand is on the daguerreotypes. My eyes on a cloth monkey dressed in a suit and tie. My toes in my shoes and my hands at the ends of my arms.The cup on top of the time machine makes a composition; What is a receiver? A cradle? What is “return?” The coin slot is a finger dip in into the dark. Where are the cool blue mint hoods of Brazil? “Mary had a little lamb,” were the first words.The silver of the daguerreotype serves as my mirror. I’m building a time machine made from parts of the past, for when I might return through an old memory stored in wood.       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Alice Notley and Brenda Coultas

Semi-Private If you’re dressed in white and being importuned by sick people, you might be a nurseor other health care professional. If you feel you’ve been pierced with harpoons and are lying on a beachlistening to the sand but not hearing the ocean you could be mistaken. But if, in the middle of the forestyou come upon your arch-foe finishing a sandwich and drinking from your skull, you will know with certainty: you have taken a wrong turn in life. Coming home from school that dayyou should have gone left at the dry goods store, followed Elm Street to the edge of townand then set off on the dash through the proliferations of the momentto the interim haven of the future. This must have been the workof the sorceress in red, whose existence may have come to fruition that very morning &emdash; you overheard whispers in the garden, there, just outside your window, while enchanted flies buzzed in the heat. Jennifer Moxley Jennifer Moxley’s publications include five books of poetry, Clampdown (2009), The Line (2007), Often Capital(2005), The Sense Record (2002; 2003) and Imagination Verses (1996; 2003), as well as her memoir, The Middle Room (2007).

This follows A Couple of ways of Doing Something, a collaboration with Chuck Close (Aperture) and Crossing State Lines: An American Renga from Farrar Strauss (co-editor). He teaches at Columbia and NYU and is a founder of the Bowery Poetry Club where he serves as Artistic Director. He is a proponent of poetry-media collaborations, producing five seasons of "Poetry Spots" for WNYC-TV, winning three Emmys; his five-part PBS series, The United States of Poetry, won an INPUT (International Public Television) Prize. He was the host of MTV's "Spoken Word Unplugged," appeared on "HBO Def Poetry Jam," and created the first major spoken word record label, Mouth Almighty/Mercury. His current mission is bringing attention to Endangered Languages -- half the languages on earth will disappear this century. His 3-part series on this subject, "On the Road," is available on LinkTV, and he is in preparation for "Word Up!", a 90-minute special for PBS. Recent travels have been to Wales (he is learning Welsh), and to the griots of West Africa and their counterpart, the azmaris of Ethiopia. He is co-director of the Endangered Language Alliance. How Kora Was Born -- as sung by Papa Susso to Bob HolmanThis story begins long long long long agoSo long ago that it was a place not a timeThere was a manHe was so aloneThe only person he could talk to was AfricaLuckily there was a tree nearbyEven more luckily behind that treeThat’s where his partner was hidingAll the sun and all the water were condensedInto a single tiny blockWhich the man planted in the sandy soilHe blew and he blew on that spotEach time he blew he thought he heard somethingWhat he was hearing was of course his partner singingThe man didn’t even know what singing wasBecause he could only talkv He couldn’t sing yetSo he blew and he listened, blew listened blew listenedAnd the plant pushed out dark greenAnd began to twist and grow A vine reaching for the breath And stretching towards the song(Because it was made from sun and rain, remember?) So at the end of the vine that was the calabashAnd the tree it was not a tree anymoreIt was the neck and handlesThat was when the man’s partner Saba Kidane Came out into the open (but that’s another story) And the breath and the singing and the vine? Well, there are 21 strings, what do you think? And now you say what about the bridge and the cowhide And the rings that tie the strings to the neck So you can tune the koraHey, what about the thumbtacks that holdThe cowhide taut over the calabashAnd the resonator holeWell you go right on talking about all thatI’m playing kora nowNext time I’ll tell you about the cow Alhaji Papa Susso Alhaji Papa Susso is a master kora player and oral historian from The Gambia, West Africa. Hailing from a long line of griots (traditional oral historians) of the Mandinka people, he was taught the kora by his father and has been playing since the age of five. The kora, a 21-stringed harp-lute, is the preferred instrument of Mandinka Jalolu (Griot), itinerant musicians who were traditionally attached to royal courts where their duties included recounting the tribal history and genealogy, composing commemorative songs, and performing at important tribal events. Today Papa Susso is a goodwill ambassador traveling around North America, giving both classroom presentations and formal concert performances where he recounts the history of his country and his people, discusses the roles of griots in West African culture, and performs the classic songs of the griot repertoire. Thomas Fink Thomas Fink was born in New York City in 1954. He is the author of seven books of poetry, including most recentlyPeace Conference (Marsh Hawk Press, 2011), Clarity and Other Poems (Marsh Hawk Press, 2008), and a book of collaborative poetry with Maya Diablo Mason, Autopsy Turvy (Meritage Press, 2010). A Different Sense of Power: Problems of Community in Late-Twentieth Century Poetry (FDU Press, 2001) is his most recent book of criticism, and in 2007, he co-edited Burning Interiors: David Shapiro’s Poetry and Poetics (FDU Press). His work has appeared in The Best American Poetry 2007, and his paintings hang in various collections. Fink is a Professor of English at CUNY-LaGuardia, and lives in New York City. Dusk Bowl Intimacies 19 I once saw a handsome coven—lovers (by no means, of means)—up there in the bush, up in the sky. My glasses were alive then. The minute they wave, I think they shouldn’t. They want a new religion, too. It isn’t just money: it’s their creed. We’ll be getting a lot of candidates. My ex-boyfriend and his brother were deemed dead fish. They brought them back to life—a couple of days of light. Too late, too early, at sea. But if you ride on the right horse. . . . Do you ever brush up on your flying? That’s a good strategy to keep me alive a little longer. Can’t die with you too far away. Otherwise, I’ll die in hell.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Bob Holman and Thomas Fink

A second book of poems, The Treatment of Monuments, is forthcoming from Split Level Texts in the fall of 2012.

OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE The dawn would be nice if it didn’t arrive so early.     I don’t know why I rarely want what I can have. There’s a logic to animals and to tumbleweed assembly lines     reconfigured between shifts to produce Escalade interiors. But it doesn’t quench my addiction to you, as a family     of civilian ghosts phase-shifts through the fog lights     piercing an Olive Garden parking lot. Switch the camera over to movie mode. My favorite     bartender storyboarded the decline of the rural gentry while clearing away the empties. The remaining spills     dribble uphill at $100 a barrel, like buying a whole CD to hear one love song or renting a lifeboat by the hour     in the Arctic. I used to be the person in my building     who dragged the trash curbside each week. A hand moves across the sky. I already said that I’ve made     mistakes, though they don’t include spot-ironing wrinkles out of the matches stored next to the kerosene and feeding strays     with the other neighborhood housewives while performing the rain dance. I fade just a little bit when your star goes away.     It could be midnight madness in the middle of the day     and still remain quiet. But these used hospital slippers fit the system or the individual     watching dirty bathwater swirl down the drain. There goes our safe space, ignoring a knock at the door. Children don’t give up     on love and say where will the snow carry you? After 9/11, I felt frozen in place and didn’t leave the city     for almost a year. Then the police came to take     away the pain. Poem reprinted from Late in the Antenna Fields. Copyright © 2011 by Alan Gilbert. Reprinted with permission of the author and Futurepoem (http://www.futurepoem.com). Paul Chan Paul Chan was born in 1973 in Hong Kong and raised in Omaha, Nebraska.

Chan has allocated a central role to the figure of the Marquis de Sade in his recent works, including My laws are my whores (2008) and Sade for Sade's Sake (2009), the latter of which was included in the Venice Biennale that year. He is the author of the artist books' The Essential and Incomplete Sade for Sade’s Sake (2010) and Phaedrus Pron (2010). Chan lives and works in New York.

Boro of Todi The indefinite grist of the hour’s millhere is manufactured from a girlherself as receptacle of a woman’s debris the vaporous container of the solidified human gelee. Every second’s stroking additionis stored at the crossroads of my own volition. A rocky cup strewn path of charms and knots the crushed pods of invidious thought stucco the ground with the shells of the spent hours that fell to the ground inside this riddled space decorated with cannon, a tractor, the banquet’s soiled lace that I used to wipe my face of rain, coffee, tears and sperm. From the derivatives all I could learn inscribed, diluted, washed in the chalice. The smaller one, shaped like petal that contorted ejaculates in bliss.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Laura Moriarty and Kimberly Lyons

Slowly rowing through waterlilies, a ladyreclined at the end of a better centurybegging you, please don’t rain on my tracing paper.

BART Begin going down, Embarcadero, into the ground, earth’s surface, escalators down, a world of tile, fluorescent lights, is this the right ticket, labor day, day free of labor, trains, a man is asking is there anything to see, Glen Park, Daly City, I’m going south which in my head means down but I’m going forward, she says he should turn around, off at Powell, see Union Square, see Chinatown, last day of the season so they say, visualize tourists, worms in a salad, wife speaks no English, Czech perhaps, Soviet, Polish, is this the right ticket, carpet of the car is yellow, orange, green, red, blue woven in also, going faster now, lights flicker now out the windows, dark there, not flicker but we pass them so quickly, didn’t realize this station was underground, 11:30 Glen Park, we surface, cloudy day, these windows are dirty, should I get off here, should I wait, forget about Balboa Park, is it there, does it exist, does it exist for a reason, pen is blue for a change, a possible difference, a man about my age with razorcut hair, old women, I get off, Daly City, go down concrete stairs, into the interior again but not really, the ticket is wrong, means I’ll

Wells Fargo, poster of a stage coach, this is an act, this is deliberate, parallel to the freeway, apartments very square here, you don’t think of it as the City but it is, go into the world and describe it, the farther talks with his youngest son, rest of the family is silent, more people get on, no one gets off, 11:59, moves quickly now, other conversations not loud enough for me to hear them, voice on the public address system sez 24th Street, no one is waiting but we stop, bought this notebook just for today, months ago, bought this pen just last Friday, today’s Monday, Kathy Tobin and Shelley have pens just like it, 49¢, stiletto point, man gets on with a racing form in hand, looks apprehensive, you always see stress in everyone’s face, it’s in their eyes, how they hold their mouths, as if it took an effort to keep their lips in control, from contorting, you don’t need to know them, any day, especially after work, Civic Center, 12:08, car’s half full now, a longer stop than usual, no one’s tried to sit next to me so far, Ev sez I wear my hair like a wild man, it puts the straights off, three older people stand and wait to get off, that man with the hat, carpet is

America is beware of microwave ovens, I’m wearing my phony earth shoes, beginning to show their age, harder to write with the book bag in my lap, alters the angle, the surface, Oakland now, rail yards, Military Ocean Terminal, postal station for incoming foreign mail, where I’d be if I hadn’t quit, 8 years ago this month, every cell in body different now, that woman’s still ordering her children, just her form of conversation, boxcars, seatrains, above the ghetto, sunnier here, the symbol of Mack Truck is a bulldog, Tribune Tower on the left lost now amid office buildings, into the

car now, man in front of me seems to have gone to sleep, red tile at 12th Street, blue at 19th , Japanese tourist, this is the familiar part to me now, way to Berkeley, more scraping as the car turns, I anticipate the nature of future stops, Pill Hill to the right, cluster of hospitals, with the inevitable parasites, chem. labs, funeral homes, why call them parlors, remember waiting at MacArthur

take my jacket off, getting warm, Rockridge, 12:30, beautiful homes then below ground for a minute, how is a tunnel thru a hill the same or different from one underground or under water, suddenly remember nights of staying up high to scribble verbatim thots as poems, 1964, Ginsbergesque or so I thought, I didn’t think when that ordering mother got off, college age couple there now, arms about one another, description implies a relation, the dry hills of Orinda, at the end of a summer drought, John and Ann used to live at the top of that hill, house is still there, we used to visit often,

see myself in the window, that’s where the world is, condo-like office buildings, new life in Lafayette, a girl, age 10 at the most, in a bright pink jumpsuit is standing on the platform, waiting to go the other way, hot rods on the freeway beside us, 24 East, man in the yellow shirt is reading TV Log now, there’s a cemetery, I notice a ring on his left hand, for a long time we’ve been turning

she passes, it looks pretty full, it does, same one I got off of waiting to go back, do I want to drink that Fresca now, perfect summer weather here, so often I’ve noticed that people who grew up in

1:59, I’m only half done, is that it, an act, something done deliberately, of description, which means place, but of travel, meaning place shifts, alters, speech chain Moebius Strip, had not expected the crowd, but that’s alright, this blue ink is lovely, a pleasure to watch, jotting, is what I do, wander around the platform, take photos, speaker system sez slight delay on the Richmond-bound line,

Rob's Word Shop was a storefront shop where individual letters and words were sold. The words and letters were either chosen by the individual customers or arrived at with my assistance. I would then hand-write or print the letter, word, or words. Single letters were sold for 50 cents and single words for one dollar. My shop location was 308 Bowery (the south window at the Bowery Poetry Club), and my hours of operation were Tuesday through Thursday 11:00AM—2:00PM, from May 5 through May 27. As the sole proprietor of the store, I invited people to stop by for a chat and buy a letter or word or a phrase of words. All of these chats were recorded as videos (and can be viewed on You tube—robswordshop). Each of these video conversations was then transcribed for a forthcoming book. from Customer 14Customer 14: there's no censorship of content of words?Rob: absolutely notCustomer 14: and you know how to spell the words?Rob: well if I don't we look ‘em upCustomer 14: Ok, diarrhea Rob: that's the word?... good one... um, let's see, and we're talking about the sharpie or the pen?Customer 14: um... maybe... maybe the sharpie... it makes more of a... well... let's do a comparison... it seems like a bolder way, you know, I think there's two r's... r-r-h-e-a r-h-e-aRob: oh, hey... this is my records manager, Lawrence Customer 14: hey what's up Lawrence?Rob: This is Andy...

He recently published a book of poetry, Further Adventures in Monochrome (Copper Canyon Press, 2012) and a chapbook, Egyptian Sonnets (Rain Taxi, 2012). He has received numerous grants and fellowships including one from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation (2006), and the National Endowment for the Arts (1976). He teaches at Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts and lives and in New York City. The Blackest Black Forest Just nada y nada, which means drop dead in your cleanest socks, o grand and fearless pumpkin. Whether brave or bedraggled or both, the fact that you can put anything (or anyone) into my poem doesn’t mean that you should submit an innocent biped to the vagaries of an adventure, escapade, or journey, any exploit that might be considered a quest, search, mission, or hunt. Haven’t you been listening? Don’t you press your ears to the airwaves? Undertakings in which there is something momentous, earth shattering, or life changing waiting at an undisclosed location (the end) have not (repeat) been acceptable, or even advisable, for decades (insert longer time frame). It is nostalgia personified ever since (ever since) the price of gasoline began rising, the increased industrial capacity of our treacherous neighbors to the east became an economic factor, and the calamitous aftermath of the fall of grandiose empires to the north and south. Officially speaking, there are to be no further missions, pursuits, or expeditions, either within the domain of this poem or outside its porous borders, in the no-man’s land of ruined kingdoms, broken oil derricks and growing silt deposits. Any such chase could, would, and should end in disaster, an upsetting of the lately achieved balance, a crisis that is to be avoided now that villagers across the land have erected new traffic signals outside their municipal swimming pools. Listen to what they are saying -- Please be careful when approaching the crosswalk; and be advised that the starlings, nuthatches, and finches must be collectively recognized for their contributions to the recent paper drive. This is the poem in which you are most happy, the one that most closely resembles you in all your minor notes of glory. —John Yau Arlo Quint Arlo Quint is the author of Drawn In (Fewer & Further, 2010) and Photogenic Memory (Lame House, 2007). He collaborated with writer Charles Wolski on Check Out My Lifestyle (Well Greased, 2012), and his book Death to Explosions is forthcoming from Skysill in 2013. He is an editor of Brawling Pigeon and program coordinator for The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church in New York City. haloalkane a million to one   direct hitthe good fortune of an hourmust have been intercalatedsomewhere    seems to havelearned of the horizon the art of perpetual retreating and referencesteps being takenthe meaning wastedthey that found out the hard way    naturallylost breath   stays airbombs dropping on TV from downstairs   Surfer Rosa above       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; John Yau and Arlo Quint

Where The Fuck Were You Trulia voices wake me up. It's too embarrassing pulsing in is the deep mirror a light snow performing butoh.

Cavalli lives in Rome.       How sweet it was yesterday imagining I was a tree!I had almost rooted in one placeand grew in sovereign slowness there.I took the breeze and the north wind,caresses, blows--what difference did it make?I was neither joy nor torment to myself,I couldn't detach myself from my own center,no decisions, no movement:if I moved it was because of the wind.

She lives in Chicago. Mediterranean --when she disappeared on the path ahead of meI leaned against a twisted oak, all I saw was evening light where she had been:gold dust light, where a moment beforeand thirty-eight years before thatmy substantial mother strode before me in straw hat, bathing suit, and loose flapping                                                                                                                                    shirt,every summer afternoon, her knapsack light across her back,her step, in sandals, firm on the stony pathas we returned from the beachand I mulled small rebellions and observed the dwarfish cork treeswith their pocky bark, the wind-wrestled oaks with arms akimbo,while shafts of sea-light stabbed down between the trunks.There was something I wanted to say, at the age of twelve,some question she hadn’t answered,and yesterday, so clearly seeing her pace before meit rose again to the tip of my tongue, and the mystery wasnot that she walked there, ten years after her death,but that she vanished, and let twilight take her place—     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Patrizia Cavalli and Rosanna Warren

He lives and works in Chicago, where he teaches creative writing at Columbia College. from "℅ Peter Drake"        I’ve decided being       new in New York       is a permanent frame       of mind. It’s been       a year already &       I still don’t feel       comfortable here.       Everything’s moving       too fast—a slash of       green, then yellow       paint; a gray, rain-       slick blur. Horns       honk, the subway       rumbles underfoot.       The crowd pushes       past a homeless soul       in a soiled sleeping       bag in the middle       of the sidewalk. A       bald man in a hos-       pital gown stands       on the corner of the       next block, scream-       ing. I just want to sit       somewhere & smoke       a cigarette & think.       Everyone says it takes       at least two years . . .       Will I ever get used       to winter? I don’t like       how hats mess up       my hair, can’t stand       cold air on my neck.       Joan says the secret       to keeping warm is       to wear layers. Paul       advises me to mois-       turize. (Because his       face is heavily lined?)       Tim sends me a Christ-       mas card (with angels).       When I graduate, will       I move back to L.A.?A fifth-floor walkup at 249 East Second Streetwhere Houston & Second, running parallel,come to a point at Avenue C,sublet (illegally) from artist Peter Drakewhile he’s on a yearlong residency in Germany.A tiny closet of an apartment, all white,with two windows that face a defunct theaterturned (illegal) nightclub called The World.Through a hole in the floor near the radiator,I hear the man in the apartment belowabuse his girlfriend. (Peter warnedme about this.) Next door there’s a gas station;on the corner, a “bodega” (a New York word)where I buy yogurt & muffins & Marlboro Lights.Every month I mail a money order to the landlordas if I were Peter Drake.Hedda Nussbaum’s battered face &Marla Hanson’s slashed face &the assault & rape of the Central Park joggerare all over the tabloids.The pulsating beat of the disco across the streetmakes it difficult to study or sleep.I wear earplugs as I read the Romantics one semester,the Victorians the next. “Where shall I learn to getmy peace again?” I underline (in pencil) in Keats.In Arnold: “this strange disease of modern life . . .”Shelley’s “To a Skylark” is a favorite: “Our sweetestsongs are those that tell of saddest thought.”As is Coleridge’s “Frost at Midnight.”I write papers on Byron’s “Darkness” & Tennyson’s Maud& fall in love with Dorothy Wordsworth’s journals(which Jimmy, fellow diary-lover, is happy to hear):“God be thanked I want not society by a moonlight lake.” Joanna Fuhrman Joanna Fuhrman is the author of four books of poetry, most recently Pageant (2009) and Moraine (2006), as well as the chapbook The Emotive Function (2011). Self-Pity The best thing about this lipstick called Self-Pity is that you can wear it with both active wear and a couture chemise. Apply it slumped in your igloo with your panda bear oven mitts and/or regally in the powder room of the Silver Spoon Lounge. No one will care that you spent your teenagehood riding a leaf blower to the Model UN or that when you stagger to the window in your stacked claw heels, you resemble an elderly palm tree, swayed by millennial breeze.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; David Trinidad and Joanna Fuhrman

He publishes Adventures in Poetry books, and previously edited the poetry magazine Sal Mimeo. He is the founder of Danspace, the dance program at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery. His most recent book is Complete Fragments (2012). Remembrance of Things Lapsed While in Hong Kong I accepted gifts of a Patek Philippe watch and custom suits at Sam’s Tailor and Modestos. I came to meetings with Poland Spring water bottles filled with vodka. I wore clerical garb to the opera. I’m sorry for the pain I caused. I’m not sure how much time is left but I don’t feel anxious. There are many distractions—art and literature, music, cards, Anna, you, Gayfryd, the cats, collections and recollections. Thinking back to Fall 1967, when I took over Reliance Insurance and gave my first reading at the Poetry Project—all gone now. And just what was wrong with “all its dizzy raptures”? Eh? Tell me that. But keep trying. Look at Ashbery over there. He gives it all he’s got. Mitch Highfill Mitch Highfill is the author of Moth Light (2008), Rebis (2007), and Koenig’s Sphere (2003). His work has appeared in Cuz, Snare, Gallery Works, The Poker and The World, among other magazines, and in the anthology Heights of the Marvelous (2000). Black Sun Where is my inheritance, about whicha tribe, a name, a rose? Where was I bornleaning against a tree outside the courtof last resort like a metaphysical novelleaves no flower unplucked, trying toremember my last time at the platewhen all the trash talk was revelation;all your marbles were in the same baglike irony with hostages, complete negation. An opaque body strung betweentrees but the wind blew past the dictatesof others, the marketplace and itsmutations – not an easy grace, not graceat all. The letter never sent when loveproduces a state of balance, a shiningalphabet whose trade is blood and water.Inescapable viscosity. Eager to ring bellsand light bonfires. Not asking for statisticsbut becoming the numbers since your deathunder the offshore. To push the differencebetween theory and proof, my subconsciousfatalism jealous of need, neither eating nor drinking but disastrous and angrylike mountains through the windshield.One’s right of reprisal so that we have unknowncollaborators and we remember it all the time.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Larry Fagin and Mitch Highfill

Among his books of poetry are The Afterglow of Minor Pop Masterpieces (2007) and The Basement of the Café Rilke (1997). His poems have recently appeared in Fence, Vanitas and Privacy Policy: the Anthology of Surveillance Poetics (2014). Our Lady of Pompeii/John Lee Hooker “I acted alone,” read the captionon the front page of a tabloidI hadn’t yet seen as morning cameand I headed uptown toward Bleecker Street. It was time to think aboutNew York City because it was all around me;it was time to think aboutthose who couldn’t adequately enjoy the dayI was walking into as into a poem by Philippe Jaccottetbecause of the insidious meshingof their parents’ socio-economic statusand a system that reserves its greatest rewardsfor the owners of secret algorithms.Greenwich, Spring, Hudson, Vandam, Varick, Carmine.If every passerby is a potential poemor a friend like, say, Holly or Bruce,or even both, then nested in every building is the outline of a mineral explanation of why things are the way they are:the Doric columns flanking the school dooracross from the café where I’m sitting nowwith an espresso made by Joe (Gió?)and this open notebook where I, too, act alone,not only support a name-bearing pedimentbut are the concrete consequence of precisely those supple nets of obligations and expectationsthat interfere with the realization of enshrined rightsscratched onto a sheet of dried animal skinthat, in any case, extended no sheltering cloakto fractional citizens whose thumping commentaryvibrated along the floorboards and through the jittery windows of tar-paper palaces. Mónica de la Torre Mónica de la Torre is the author of Public Domain (2008) and Talk Shows (2007), as well as two collections in Spanish: The Happy End (2014) and Four (2012). Her work has been published in Aufgabe, Art in America, Convolution, frieze, and Triple Canopy’s Corrected Slogans. She is senior editor at BOMB Magazine. Mind-Set As if language made the image legible,and credible, not edible, though consumption is… We know— we’ve consumed enough consumptionand have grown tiredof the hostile environmentof the environment. People read the paper in the morning—at night they turn to fictions. What kinds of dreams would reversing this simple habitprecipitate. Speak the language of what had heretoforebeen unsaid. And spare us the illustration. We’ve seen it before.And speaking of commitment—Memory is an asylum, a dream we try to decipherwhile still asleep. The joke she botches every time she tries to get it right.       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Raphael Rubinstein and Mónica de la Torre

His books have been translated into more than forty languages. Facing the Music Blue. And within that blue a feelingof green, the gray blocks of cloudsbuttressed against air, as ifin the idea of rainthe eyecould master the speechof any given momenton earth. Call it the sky. And soto describewhatever it iswe see, as if it were nothingbut the ideaof something we had lostwithin. For we can beginto rememberthe hard earth, the flintreflecting stars, the undulatingoaks set looseby the heaving of air, and so downto the least seed, revealing what growsabove us, as ifbecause of this blue there could bethis greenthat spreads, myriadand miraculousin this, the most silentmoment of summer. Seedsspeak of this juncture, definewhere the air and the earth eruptin this profusion of chance, the randomforces of our own lackof knowing what it iswe see, and merely to speak of itis to seehow words fail us, how nothing comes rightin the saying of it, not even these wordsI am moved to speakin the name of this blueand greenthat vanish into the airof summer.             Impossibleto hear it anymore. The tongueis forever taking us awayfrom where we are, and nowherecan we be at restin the things we are givento see, for each wordis an elsewhere, a thing that movesmore quickly than the eye, evenas this sparrow moves, veeringinto the airin which it has no home. I believe, then,in nothingthese words might give you, and stillI can feel themspeaking through me, as ifthis aloneis what I desire, this blueand tins green, and to sayhow this bluehas become for me the essenceof this green, and more than the pureseeing of it, I want you to feelthis wordthat has lived inside meall day long, thisdesire for nothingbut the day itself, and how it has growninside my eyes, strongerthan the word it is made of, as ifthere could never be another wordthat would hold mewithout breaking. Siri Hustvedt Siri Hustvedt is the author of a book of poems, Reading to You (1995); a collection of essays, Living, Thinking, Looking (2012); and the novels The Blazing World (2014), The Summer Without Men (2011), The Sorrows of an American (2009), The Enchantment of Lily Dahl (2004), What I Loved (2004), and The Blindfold (1992).

They whisper,Like those who see the dead in the same room:Outlining the universe in a coffin.It is strange to think that infinity has six sides.Heaven is this cage of the cosmos,Reduced to the minute and the placid,Our reticulum visible in January,Ten tiny lights on an oak lid,Shining like glass where the world sleepsIn a cat's eye.       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Paul Auster and Siri Hustvedt

He attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina as a teenager and has been painting for the last six decades. He began to write in the 1980s and is now actively practicing both arts. His books include Identity (2000), Warp Spasm (2001), Mirage: A Poem in 22 Sections (2003), 77 Beasts/Basil King’s Beastiary (2007), Learning to Draw/A History (2011), and, most recently, The Spoken Word/The Painted Hand (2014). In 2010 he exhibited his visual art at Poets House in New York. He is also the subject and narrator of a 2012 film, Basil King: Mirage, by the artists Nicole Peyrafitte and Miles Joris-Peyrafitte. In November 2014 he narrated Black Mountain Songs, including a few of his poems, as part the BAM Next Wave Festival. Dan Flavin Dan Flavin's pristine unorthodox use of florescent lighting controls all the material abundance that is conspicuous in van Eyck. Precious stones and knight's armor become saturated with light. A feeling of well-being drugs the Virgin, and she is quietly removed along with all the furniture that has accompanied the religious dogma of the church. A single light bulb can be dangerous. It can drive you mad. It can keep you awake all night and dismantle your senses. Light, decorative light, dismantled the frame, and the conception of painting as Flavin understood it ceased to exist. That was a responsibility that Flavin understood. He was willing to accept that his inventive non-sculptural light that decorated the walls, floors, and ceilings produced a product that emulated nothing but beautiful light. Gregoire Pam Dick Gregoire Pam Dick (aka Mina Pam Dick, Jake Pam Dick, et al.) is the author of METAPHYSICAL LICKS (BookThug, 2014) and DELINQUENT (Futurepoem, 2009). Also an artist and translator, Dick lives in New York City, where she is currently doing work that makes out and off with Büchner, Walser, and Michaux. Our Drunken Boat Georg liked Rimbaud, read him to me, then our craft paper got soaked. Schwester stürmischer Schwermut/Sieh ein ängstlicher Kahn versinkt/Unter Sternen,/Dem schweigenden Antlitz der Nacht. Also on his bisexual p. 74 it went silver. Greta’s brother Lukerl liked young men such as the thin French-Arab one, olive skin, dark curly hair, name him Hassan. Olive notebook the building she could build for her brother in the forest of the city of her head, it would be whole and simple. Except fragmented and complex. Leaves lit the window. The question about truth relative to the prose poems. Correspondence versus something else. Two features rejected which Greta or Gregoire wants back: correlation of language and world, importance of first person singular. Lukerl beautiful when young, and he and Gretal went into the forest. Lemon dots on white shirt. Reality if and only if poetic. Novalis’s magical thinking fights the analytic death grip. Supposed to redevelop my muscles, but I like my arms to be ’70s slender. Philosophy once an academic discipline. Leiden nicht. Now it’s a toy vessel. A paper boat. Or origami. The seas of language also folding in.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Basil King and Gregoire Pam Dick

Human Memory Is Organic We know time is a wave.You can see it in gneiss, migmaticor otherwise, everything crumbles.Don’t despair.That’s the message frozen in old stone.I am just a visitor to this worldan interloper really headed deep into glass.I, moving across a vast expanse of waterthough it is not water maybe saltor consciousness itselfenacted as empathy.

Tea Palinode (18th & Sanchez) In removing sidewalks from San Francisco, I planted trees, oaks and laurel. An arc by bay, I sat in parallel time, scratching the Velcro clasp of revealing and not revealing. Having made amends in a small space, we stepped lakeside, fostered beads and tears. The mist of God fell away, the paralysis instilled; I walked alone, books on fern morphology in hand, until the region of lawns unrolled. Tending to death, this untouched shade, we troubled, uncoupled. Lost to sweep of Queen Anne’s lace and leaflets, our errant grip slips, slack. Wrapped in English, sleep exhumed a theory at map’s edge, cast in ornament, artifice, my tongue an observer.       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Joanne Kyger and Stephen Motika

There, there.You invented a revolution that onlyworks for you. Willy Wonka was builton the idea of an heir or a legacy.Can’t you see I’m burning? Out in the opena dear wound vibrates. With the rightbandwidth, it could be the 19th century.Mayakovsky’s dyslexia is well known.Everything is happening at once, literally.This morning I woke up and made a list of my top 10 worries and then I rooted around in the junk drawer. Brook’s ghost. Albert’s ghost.All the water I use in a year could fillthis apartment up to the ceiling twice.Anything that makes you laugh is true, and you know it’s true. I am genuinely goingto and fro in 3-D. Bobby Byrd Bobby Byrd grew up in Memphis during the golden age of the city’s music scene. “Black music, the great DJ Dewey Phillips and WDIA radio,” he says, “probably saved my life.” Byrd and his wife, Lee, meandered through the Southwest until they moved to El Paso with their three kids in 1978. In 1985, they founded Cinco Puntos Press, which published his most recent collection, Otherwise, My Life Is Ordinary, in 2014.

Her sound installations have been presented at numerous institutions, such as the Drawing Center, Ronald Feldman Gallery, Thomas Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument presented by Dia Art Foundation, Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, Kitchen, Museum of Modern Art, Silent Barn, and Whitney Biennial, all in New York. Morris is the recipient of awards, fellowships, and grants for poetry and performance, including residencies at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, New York, and MacDowell in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Her most recent poetry collection, Rhyme Scheme (Zasterle Press, 2012), includes a CD and her upcoming collection, handholding: 5 kinds, will be published by Kore Press in 2015. She holds an MFA in poetry from Hunter College, has studied classical British acting techniques at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and holds a PhD in performance studies from New York University. Morris is a professor and coordinator of performance and performance studies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. If I Reviewed Her (excerpt) Objectively, If I reviewed her, if I reviewed her. I reviewed her. Her her button. Her boutonniere. Herbal. Her boobeleh. Her boo. Her Too. Her tuchas. Her view. Her book. If I viewed her like I used to. I talked to. I teased her. I teach her. I reach. I rearview. “If ‘if’ was a fifth…” Black lettres. Black pov. “res” onate. Ur-words. Sona. Salon. If I revved up, I could view her through another glass, Toklas, another poem. Whatts a smatter-shattering. That piece of bright bling attached to a cloth with sharp edges, rounded o’er time, a button. A carafe. What patterns clash? What suits ya? What cymbals? What Sabians, Armenians, Jews, Germans, Blacks, Latins, Americans? Euro-detritus? Ex-plights’ us? I wonder. The “gratitude of mercy” is not explained. Isn’t made plain. The nose on your face, lalala vie en rose. What colors rise? Vie(w) finder the size of a nickel. A dime, the side of it, is the side of a button, the way it hems the pocket. The way you finger it. The pointed nature. Blood in the face. Blood on the leaves. It’s a violet hue. It shifts from blue. White gold. A shift is a ditty dress. Dirty is yellow at points. Whitest whites not coal-colored. Not coal. What’s matter? A large box clocks handily. It cloaks. When I do count the clack that tells what I re-sign to be, ore no (t). Lilies are white unless tiger, unless striped. Unless (la) t (i) tude. Un-less and un-still, etude. What’s the sound in that box? What kind of box is it? Harmonica, piano, coffin, shoo? Masque of red. Of Venice, of revenge, of reverb. The purpose of a box is to let things bounce around inside, not out. They’re all maracas, all boxes, all cojones. And that is why there aren’t brass ones. They’re bells and open at the bottom. Like a review. Stepping up to the plate to review is base. It is the ground. It’s dirty. It’s around. It’s cutting corners like sports for war. It’s saying pen’s mightier: a tool, a gourd. Assessments are objects. Alchemical and base. 2. At the bottom is Jimmy Cobb in Miles’ kinda color. Chambers’ music from an engorged lighting in a bottleneck. The fretting comes plaited, the strings curve around the fingers S, a female shape. A dress. A Tiffany lamp, a vamp to attest, to a taste. Petit for-fours. A swallow bubbles. Bubbles up words. Polite Tourettes’. A set of words water the mouth. They are things that take shape that glide down the throat. Taken (a)back, tobac. A carbo-nation, a turbo-nation a turn. The bubbles, Brooklyn circles sweet simple syrup. Another slender needle. A recording. These pieces of a house of hers. Her work, her dust, her…polishing. The dark places gleam in this paperstock card house and its phoneme particles across the board. A rainbow. Places to go red again, wheelbarrow. Another poet who knows how a black comb can be placed in the hair, how the sun sets in the wide Caribbean sea after-raining. How brilliant colors are the state of things when the daily clouds are not dark grey. The “too ra loo ra loo ral” relocate. Green as red blend in. A blue coat is not a red coat in this regard. A blue coat is bluer and a red coat redder. The grey is Tin Pan Alley’s. The percussive keys, New York. There is not the softness the name implies but the black and white holds up. Color? That quick rhythm. The 88 lucky numbers one hope one hits. Dark custom and no greyscale. A hardened snapshot, snaps shut. A bedspread, a throw. A throwaway line. A carved grapevine on a chair’s feet in a drawing room. An appointed room. The man with the scythe flutters the veil. More dark custom. The facts of dark matter. The wake. This is a show, a showing. Having a seat and muted tones, tea. Scones. Dirty dishes and crumbs. After all this. After all this, heartache, this bruise, she has to do the washing too. After she sits. After she breaks down. They had envelopes to the bride. She goes around around in white. Puts them in her purse. Why don’t they do that at the other service? That’s when she’ll need it. That’s when she’ll need it. All she has in it: keys, lipstick, handkerchief. Small hard things, lace. She needs a crinoline in there, wrapped by a rubber band. She holds the handle. It’s raining. Grey tears. Masque, mascara. The day replaying over suds, over seltzer, overlays. Mother of pearl handle. White hunter’s animal horn also mounted by him. Her mounted by him. The pallbearers pick him up. Both he and she are lighter. She might have been pulled up by the wind on this grained day. Streaks on the photo. She wipes. Grape leaves, grapes stems. This motif. A universal. A drink. Bottle, cup, glass. This earthenware variety for different means. These belongings. These things she squeezes. She sees. She swings swigs liquid the color of rain. She mends it. Brittle papier-mache. Construction. Card. A tree sliced thinner than cake. Still life th(r)ough. (knock would) Origami, with eyes. Markers, crayon, wax. A seal of something. A promissory notation. A jot. Drops dropping. Still wearing her coat. Deciding. Under that coat, a coat. Under that black, white. She is in between coats. She’s a prism. A triangle of a waist. The scythe, the window. The fire. The sandwiches on the saucers, crustless. Mayo spreads and spreads, indistinguishable from porcelain. Dotting the eyes daintily. Petals to the casket, the survivor. An unconscionable hue under the circumstances. A hint of a color. A Werther’s a peppermint under the circumstances. A grandmother, a girl. An inheritance of her heir. What’s she got to give? Hard sweets now. In her eyes, a crinkle. This one’s hair is colored. It’s a crinkle around her hat. “Tight curls.” Springs up like flowers defying gravity, the grave situation. A maid to the other lady, lays the body in the sateen. Two women. A cohesive. Brown skin and porcelain. Salon under uncertain circumstances. Both waiting. Antoinette, Jane. Where’s Jean? Sun and grey make steam. Make rainbows, make tea. Pauline, saltine. Watermelon crackers. Watermarks, salt deposits, street smarts. Street sweepings over graves. Someone shutters. Who gets a rise out of whom? An uncomfortable silence, an expectoration. Elbows placed on a table. A scene. Mesa blanca. Ectoplasm in a glass lens. Chemical processing. It did shake. Shook it. They shooed it when it shook. They eschewed it. It was fake. Pus, hence the handkerchief to the face. Pero, perrito slakes. He curls under the table by the shod feet of those two. Smells rosewooded grapes. Grapes at the wrist. A delicate glass is picked to the lips. Canine settles in. Brown eyes level, minstrelly. Blackening up, formerly used for furniture. If she can read… not furnishing. Not. And this new Black, this newsprint, this ink on the apron, bleak. Bleak cleaning. Red all over. The throw on the chair becomes a shawl, became shy, covered shoulders that shutter. Stole. As he did. An erress wraps the hollow up at the fringe. The edges of frayed pages in this view. In this mediumship, in this penman. This vaulted environ. Suppose suppose I told her, even after her repose? A typed pen silvered o’er borders on black glass where she rests. These bronzed digits typing. I watch them take form from key strokes like a piano. The mechanisms for making, unseen. A space between utility and instrument. The hearing in the ear, a scratch of tapping nails, covered up. The joints. The natural arthritic laying on of hands to generation. A poised angularity to to message. Inside the peeled pencil is dark grey. Black Took letters and lead astray point of viewing. Commentate. Black pixelate from a brown house. An address. A crackerjack to munch. Apprise inside.Room with a review to let. Shelagh Patterson Born and raised in Brooklyn, Shelagh Patterson is an activist, a poet, and a scholar.

She teaches creative writing at SUNY Nassau Community College in Garden City, New York, and serves on the executive board of VIDA: Women in Literary Arts. She also joined the ranks of Pearl Buck, Rachel Carson, Ann Patchett, and Eleanor Roosevelt as the recipient of the 2015 winner of the Women’s National Book Association Award. WAKE BEFORE DAWN & SALT THE SEA Your mouth is full of noise and I live the anomaly. That's why I'm currently drinking. And making more fuckworthy art. Because the rest is truly useless. I cut myself and no one will recall the time the poet cut her flesh or ripped her heart’s skin to tell them something. Our limits may not be expandable, but before you say, “Blood and sinew,” remember you're making a mistake. We are not edges of limbs or the heart’s smarts only. We are kiss times kiss with tree-lined lungs (yes, we are the fucking trees) that sprout with purveyors of knowledge, but too, your emotions are an intelligence, and if you don’t take care, cultivate how you learn from wounds to them, then you will be a dumb genius, dying full of money but no one will give a shit, rich asshole. Be somebody, be one who wrestles and makes love to the dark that is your deepest part, the uselessness of love and art. Alan Davies Alan Davies was born in Canada / educated in Massachusetts / and lives in New York City. He learned a great deal from the company of John Wieners. He is the author of Active 24 Hours / Name / Signage / Rave / Candor / andOdes & fragments / among others.

He is the coeditor of two chapbooks—A Musty Bone and Situations—and is the author of numerous chapbooks. Granary Books published If It Rained Here (a collaboration with artist Julie Harrison) in 1997.

In 2010 Lunar Chandelier Press published Homework. For many years, Elliot made a living as a letterpress printer. He currently teaches English at Edward R. Murrow High School in New York and lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Anne Noonan, and their three boys. The New Meow of the Old Cat The structure of the poemis always simple,but the content, the actualstuff that finds its way into it and which this poem,(like the dusty surfaceof the moon or the skinof a manikin or the phantom impression of a bodyin a bed or waking upin a house that is almostexactly like your house but is not your house(the new subject verbs the newobject and so on)), lacks,is always inexplicably true, obverted by the oldbait and switch. Sara Jane Stoner Sara Jane Stoner’s first book, Experience in the Medium of Destruction, was published in 2015 by Portable Press @ Yo-Yo Labs. She is a PhD candidate in English at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and currently serves as a reviews editor for the Poetry Project Newsletter. So This is Love In the politic of this unavoidably whole time of the now I am saying feminism is I have taken a male pronoun as my lover and envy everyone my tits when the smell of your body after you’ve come to sweat enough to rust the backing of everything each rhinestone on what the horse people call my breast collar costs less than lunch thanks to the globally lubricated distribution channels which every day go fuck your mother. I choose the street I walk down sometimes maximal with tied-up dog lusting after the hidden human and feminism is my appreciation of the intelligence old dogs exhume in me in their trembling as my gender is poised in the smell of your body after each and every cologne sold on Broadway has been applied to recently acquired territories of you measured by finest micrometer so this is love so this is love so these are the blown tulips of late spring and I am a sucker for starburst glass beneath a bucktoothed arch and I haven’t always been a man but when I am all of the sex jokes are real and I love straight edge sluts is a burger I made out of street talk and exorbitant spiciness when the capsaicin accrues in the body so much to the point that your own piss burns your own urethra like a charm. Good art humiliates women in a way that lets her feel in control for a minute it must be superfun working with her because I dream I am masturbating a standard poodle in a work space a coffee shop full of day beds on which he reclines in speech to me but only inside my mind this is a dream he says hurry up have no time no penis only a hard rounded ridge that rises to palpability after an uncertain period of random rubbing so this is what makes life divine I dream my two-day-old daughter pops up and walks off it’s totally fine because good dream interpretation simply observes all aspects of the dream as aspects of the self. Today we have unprecedented access to the eyeballs of Cindy Sherman so “presence of mind is an extract of the future” so my responsiveness is a mythical animal that consistently burns people who have trouble imagining me as a child so I show them pictures of what have you done that wallet chain is a bold autoumbilical choice and there is impotence in the heart of the traditional desire so this is love for mastery the heart of my investment in retinoids five figured shoes the scent the low mist whose composition is actually scientifically and literarily argued to be wholly composed of posed prostitutes in suits and actually is a wonderful word that obscures the fact that you’re forever aggressively apologizing and who am I to warn everyone of their own cadence. If you don’t wish to be touched you shouldn’t have sat down because it is impossible to return to the miniature human before the poised carnage of affect when it hurts to discover how ugly she’s gotten since her heart was broken by herself and so what when unwelcome gifts of tequila give me the sex sobs what Sontag calls female chauvinism is a very long story about how she wasn’t a cat person and my cat is unstoppable by any force short of death or Margaret Trigg’s shit socks and surgically annotated visage is all aglow and now I know when I leer and stink at the suits of New York when I dandruff at them there is “no more character no more character at all.” And now I know the world is nearing being known to be an artist of the human to produce a softness of matter poets chasing bare life into corners making babies is not an image what if the suits weren’t only partially iconized and pure capitalist commitment was actually pure sexual availability like coming close to naming the subject in the labyrinthine oblative of the equation my security equals your insecurity as we enter the center or center on the entrance and the key to all heaven is thine for as to be sure that “one of the bodies jammed in front of the barracks was mine.”     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Joe Elliot and Sara Jane Stoner

Vicuña has published twenty-two art and poetry books, including Kuntur Ko (Tornsound, 2015), Spit Temple (New York: Ugly Duckling Presse, 2012), Instan (Berkeley, Calif.: Kelsey Street Press, 2001), and Cloud Net (New York: Art in General, 2000).

Her art has been exhibited and collected at venues such as the Tate Gallery, London, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Chile, Santiago, and Museum of Modern Art, New York.   Those Absurd Notes 1 The hand breathes its innate rhythm, and the eye watches it, its gaze gliding across paper. 2 A fistful of forms, shawls unfurled without beginning or end, slender jacket topped with braids, seams turned inside out, exposed, hastily sewn and unfinished. A sumptuous addition to garbage art, a nascent disarmament workshop, a chapter of blood yielded in question and blow, a series of clusters, anonymous, worn, fortuitous. Stairs collapsing downwind, into deafness, into soft forms, to hear nothing, act as if nothing, that it would rain and eternally, to cross the line, unhinge, move against the tide. And begin again. 3 Everything intensi es and pierces as I watch and advance in pleasure, moistening and mutilating with wind jubilant lips as they ingestulate their proper flesh, instant juicer they proclaim out of pure delight, pure perverse pleasure, hellocinating in their own manner: manual pleasure. It startles itself with the wellness of its making, self-sweetens, bewitches from within allowing its stay, it intoxicates the forehead, the lips of this looking. The mouth watches its future swallow, enters it from behind, forges happily and in zig-zag squeals. What I saw was a lively body desiderealing itself, libido-lit, embedexterous, engulfed in conjugal waters, lymphing behind its frigid, its feted voice, its raised mound and crown . . . its funk ground down, its scrawny aporia. I did not see, as its face appeared, its hirsute well-then, you’re-never-around.                                                                                                                                             You pound and I pulsate, my dear. Someone shimmies inside the house (joyfully cooking and dancing). Someone in a domestic setting turns butterfly.       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; CAConrad and Cecilia Vicuña

She was born in Kitzingen, Germany, in 1935 and lives in Providence.   Lawn of Excluded Middle I worried about the gap between expression and intent, afraid the world might see a fluorescent advertisement where I meant to show a face. Sincerity is no help once we admit to the lies we tell on nocturnal occasions, even in the solitude of our own heart, wishcraft slanting the naked figure from need to seduce to fear of possession. Far better to cultivate the gap itself with its high grass for privacy and reference gone astray. Never mind that it is not philosophy, but raw electrons jumping from orbit to orbit to ready the pit for the orchestra, scrap meanings amplifying the succession of green perspectives, moist features, spasms on the lips.   Keith and Rosmarie Waldrop Together, Keith and Rosmarie Waldrop have published a collection of collaborative writings, titled Well Well Reality(Sausalito, Calif.: Post-Apollo Press, 1998), their autobiographies, titled Ceci n’est pas Keith Ceci n’est pas Rosmarie (Providence: Burning Deck, 2002), and a translation of Roubaud’s poems about the streets of Paris, titledThe Form of a City Changes Faster, Alas, Than the Human Heart (Victoria, Tex.: Dalkey Archive Press, 2006). The Waldrops founded Burning Deck in 1961.   Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Keith and Rosmarie Waldrop

Free for Dia members; $10 general admission; $6 admission for students and seniors Advance ticket purchases recommended. Tickets are also available for purchase at the door, subject to availability.  Mei-mei Berssenbrugge Mei-mei Berssenbrugge is a poet and editor who lives and works in New Mexico and New York. She received an MFA from Columbia University, New York. Berssenbrugge is the author of twelve books of poetry, including Hello, the Roses (New Directions, 2013). She has been a contributing editor at Conjunctions Magazine since 1978. Hello, the Roses 1My soul radially whorls out to the edges of my body, according to the same laws by which stars shine, communicating with my body by emanation. When you see her, you feel the impact of what visual can mean. Invisibility comes through of deep pink or a color I see clairvoyantly. This felt sense at seeing the rose extends, because light in the DNA of my cells receives light frequencies of the flower as a hologram. The entire rose, petals in moving air, emotion of perfume records as a sphere, so when I recall the emotion, I touch dimensionality. From a small bud emerges a tight wound bundle of babyskin coral petals, held in a half globe, as if by cupped hands. Then, petals are innumerable, loose, double, sumptuous, unified. I look through parted fingers to soften my gaze, and slow light shining off the object is filtered, and then with feeling I look at swift color there. It’s swiftness that seems still as noon light, because my seeing travels at the same speed. I make a reciprocal balance between light falling on the back of my eye to optic nerve to pineal gland, radiance stepping down to matter, and my future self opening out from this sight. A moment extends to time passing as sense impression of a rose, including new joys where imagined roses, roses I haven’t yet seen or seen in books record as my experience. Then experience is revelation, because plants and people have in their cells particles of light that can become coherent, that radiate out physically and also with the creativity of metaphor, as in a beam of light holographically, i.e. by intuition, in which I inhale the perfume of the Bourbon rose, then try to separate what is scent, sense, and what you call memory, what is emotion, where in a dialogue like touching is it so vibratory and so absorbent of my attention and longing, with impressions like fingerprints all over. I’m saying physical perception is the data of my embodiment, whereas for the rose, scarlet itself is matter. 2The rose communicates instantly with the woman by sight, collapsing its boundaries, and the woman widens her boundaries. Her “rate of perception” slows down, because of its complexity. There’s a feeling of touching and being touched, the shadings of color she can sense from touch. There’s an affinity between awareness and blossom. The rose symbolizes the light of this self-affinity. I come to visit drooping white cabbage roses at dusk. That corner of the garden glows with a quality of light I might see when light shines through mist or in early morning, reflects off water. I stand quietly and allow this quality to permeate air around me. Here, with a white rose, color is clairsentient, this color in the process of being expressed, like seeing Venus in the day. Walking, I move in and out of negative space around which each rose is engaged and become uncertain of my physical extent as an object. Look at the energy between people and plants; your heart moves into depth perception; for depth, read speed of light. I set my intention through this sense of moving into coherence with the bio-photons of a plant and generate feeling in response. A space opens and awareness gathers it in, as at night my dream is colorless and weaves into the nuance. I can intentionally engage with the coherence of light beams, instant as though lightless, or the colored light of a dimension not yet arrived, as our hearts are not outside affinity with respect to wavelength, shaping meaning, using the capacity for feeling to sense its potency in a rose and to cultivate inter-being with summer perfume. Richard Tuttle Richard Tuttle was born in Rahway, New Jersey, in 1941. He received a BA from Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, in 1963. In 2016 his work was included in an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This is a block of textbefore it can become a block of text. It is predisposedto being read. It is given to content, the balance bestowedupon an even number of lines. This is formation and belief.This proves the generative quality of death. It is autumnal.This is arrival and departure. This is terse, lateral, style.This plastic toy perspires. It is drawn. It breathes intoa person. It takes the air, and gives it back untouched.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Patricia Spears Jones and Christopher Stackhouse

Out of which, a picture of me walking in a foreign head.     I can’t hear what you said. Then you say: Cold room,the second that life unwinds. A tinctured vase returns to grass. Secrets doled out deep inside a drum beat out     of time. Whatever you said was ghostly slow likea second hand unwinding by match light. Lying back  to the wheel, I shirked confusion. You already knew.     Suitcases surround me. You picture me too far ahead.Yet I can’t hear what you’ve said. You say: Doldrums,  some secondhand wine. Love, you knew my precincts.     The stone house turned out black, the scenic tunicswere deep inside. Who said home? Oh, I fall behind.  That very secret height blinds. Lying like a diamond,     the cock-thickening of you: hunchbacked arms, eyesleft behind. You’ll picture me walking far, far ahead. I hear what you’ve done. You said: Go slow. I feebly     bleed out. Matthew’s sermon turned out to be glass.I wander in windows soft as Sour Patch. No rewind. But something is out of touch and you, you’re Sinbad.     That second date totally mine. Lying in a vacuum,the thickening plot thinks of you. The future’s not new. touchdown. Lights. All those celebrity behinds.     A suitcase full of weeds. You picture me coming to.You: too close to me to hear what you’ve already said. Then you say: The second wind unwinds. Doves whistle,     halving their dovely backs, watching out windows to seeif I’m okay. See it, the dulcet moment? I’m like thicket tinkering for you. Fusion nothing you knew. Flash back     to seagull-beguiled eyes. Sometimes talking to a barrenlad. Such music so unbearably droll. The hand is mine. Random picture frames off the darkness. A Turing machine?     Scotch-taping through windows, stolen from deep insiderum-beaded thyme. You say also: Behind sequins & hinds . . . And I’m in the barricade hearing the clock thickening you.     Clematis enclosures, walking with news, pollinated by asecondary grief, while something reminds you of our love. Simone White Simone White is a poet who lives and works in New York. She received her MFA from the New School, New York.

Tickets are also available for purchase at the door, subject to availability.  Joel LewisJoel Lewis’s latest book, My Shaolin: A Poem of Staten Island (Hanging Loose Press, 2016), is a book-length poem that serves as a psychogeographic investigation of the southernmost portion of the New York Archipelago. Previous books include North River Rundown (Accent Editions, 2012), Surrender When Leaving Coach (Hanging Loose Press, 2012), Learning from New Jersey (Talisman House, 2007), Vertical’s Currency (Talisman House, 1999), and House Rent Boogie (Yellow Press, 1992). He edited Bluestones and Salt Hay (Rutgers University Press, 1990), an anthology of contemporary New Jersey poets, as well as On the Level Everyday (Talisman House, 1997), the selected talks of Ted Berrigan, and Reality Prime (Talisman House, 1998), the selected poems of Walter Lowenfels. A social worker by day, he has taught creative writing at the Poetry Project, Rutgers University, and Writer’s Voice. And, for better or worse, he initiated the ill-fated New Jersey Poet Laureate position that was such a headache for Amiri Baraka. With his wife, Rutgers University cinema professor Sandy Flitterman-Lewis, he resides in Hoboken. At The Bohemian Embassy           Bare red balloon in the foyer           She has no words except “I'll be there”.           But what have I signed up for?           Warps of estrangement?          “Your paintings of mind-blistering cold snow..."           Borrow what you can           Night-kissing bitter Turkish cigarettes           Of new information & the blur of freaked pigeons            Your scheme to condo heating grates….           Seems that nerves do the walking           Or large as a lake that burned.                                        Edwin TorresEdwin Torres came to poetry through performance art in New York City’s East Village in the early 1990s. The neighborhood’s diversity in addition to the combined forces of Dixon Place, Nuyorican Poets Café, and St. Marks Poetry Project shaped his multidisciplinary approach to language. His books include Ameriscopia (University of Arizona Press, 2014), Yes Thing No Thing (Roof Books, 2010), and The PoPedology of an Ambient Language (Atelos, 2007). Fellowships include the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York Foundation for Arts, and Poetry Fund. Anthologies include Angels of the Americlypse: New Latin@ Writing (Counterpath Press, 2014), Postmodern American Poetry (W. W. Norton & Company, 2013), and Aloud; Voices From The Nuyorican Poets Café (Holt, 1994).

There’d be the midnight showing,then dawn and the first day of the rest of obsession’s wretched life. Then the near-death experience of 3 a.m.,the white light of wondering if maybe  the entire systemcould be made to understand that already, long ago, when god was a boy,it had stumbled onto a way to short-circuit itself.  I mean, obsessing about obsession is a double negative, right?What could be more positive, more life-affirming, as they used to say,when starvation had cult status and so did fire and dust and the green embersof moss that aligned themselves with the edges of the flagstones. There was a clavicle cult and a cult devoted to knock-knock jokes.Who’s there?  Who isn’t?  The cult of everyone and his brotherwas rivaled only by the cult of wanting to be alone, wanting to be alonewith everyone else who wanted to be alone. Some were obsessed with Parmenides or Krispy Kreme, and those who could think of nothing but the uncertainty principleand getting their mitts on more and more uncertainty principle memorabilia  found that their thoughts either did or did not fill all of heavenwith an aurora borealis of insatiable need. There was no room for thoughts  of obsession itself.  Those were simpler,more innocent times, as they used to say, when things were really complicatedby my memory of the way the very idea of cult status had really loved you, everything had really loved you,even the crush had loved you.  Really, truly loved youand what it really, truly loved was to hate the difference between love and obsession, which is what made the world go round, and what made it go awaywas the knowledge that you would, soon, and so what choice did I have?  I made lateness my truest loveand soonness my obsession, my raison d’être, the object of my cult.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20171120T235900; Ann Stephenson and Carter Ratcliff

Velocity and Turbulence             — to Gabriela Mistral (Lucila Godoy Alcayaga), Chile, 1889-1957 Be always conscious of your wings. Darknessis overtaking, and tension is tired. In the houseof keeping still, all is hollow-eyed, groaning. Shiver and tingle outside the automobile: Grandmais on life support. The nurses found her, called youa wanderer. They knew nothing of resistance— or did they?  Disrobe, as the holiest were often requiredto be naked. Under the serpent dome the sun doorstood open, all of creation flying through it,in radiant rounds of joy.  Take the mantle of an earth-colored insect and make a wandwith twigs and leaves. Use it to conjure the cunning beautyof certain corpses. If performed correctly, their faces will resembleluminous, apricot-colored clouds. Make a pilgrimage to the Mountain of Butterflies — love descendson those defenseless. If your hearth is redolent with the scent of flesh, fan the flames to producea cooling jewel. The ocean-born virgin was nicknamed “Fishy Smell” but her real namewas “Bird.” Find her in the neck of time. Her vaginais enough; you don’t need the legs. Rememberthat initiation takes a lifetime. One day a triangle of lightwill come pouring through the porch. Breathe deep. Everything that torments and suffocates, everythingthat imparts sorrow and despair, is the moving waterthat turns the wheel that transforms airinto tree into prayer into air.Make scribble pictures of the stain on your ceiling and tryto sell them. Very few will buy. When you stall, when your coverts beatto no advantage, you may choose to sacrifice happiness to restorewhat was lost, but the sacrifice itselfis a privilege. How long will it take you to forget this?  Now recall the glory of your wings. Wayne Koestenbaum has published eighteen books of poetry, criticism, and fiction, including Notes on Glaze (2016), The Pink Trance Notebooks (2015), My 1980s & Other Essays (2013), Humiliation (2011), Hotel Theory (2007), Best-Selling Jewish Porn Films (2006), Andy Warhol (2001), Jackie Under My Skin (1995), and The Queen’s Throat (1993), which was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist.
