Review of the May Reading

With a enthusiastic but small crowd for the May Reading.


1 Albert Sussler Reading A history of Peter’s Jokes. ‘ Wearing a lobster tie to the Matzoh ball ‘

2 Joe Sichi The Life of two homeless ‘ Gambling … when you win god knows your there.’

3 Takashi Wakui World Heritage Sites ‘ The sites I visited are etched in books and on DVDs but not in my brain’

4 Keiri Hashimoto (read by Brian Cullen ) Solitude and other poems ‘Solitude, I won’t get out of your way.’

5 Sarah Mulvey Third and final part of Pumpkin ‘ Keep gloves on, keep a happy life.’

The winner of the May cup went to Keiri Hashimoto a sculpture of stone who’s poems are inspired by his work. Congratulations.

After the Reading, some of us went over to the Red Rock to hear Brian and his partner give an Irish Concert to a big turn out. Great evening.

There was also much appreciation for the work Ernest Schaal did in bringing forth the Pattern’s issue. Please take a look at:

It gives our readings more than just the special moment of meetings but a history and a broader audience.

It can be found at:

The next reading will be on June 22 at the Misfits from 4:30 pm When you have an prose or poem you are looking forward to presenting at the next reading , please give us all a teaser. To build up anticipation. It is so much more helpful then just reading about who will not be coming.

keep inspired.

I no naka no kaeru taikai o shirazu.

Literally: A frog in a well does not know the great sea.
