Reading Review: July 2009
There was a good turn out at the Red Rock. Over twenty with eight Readers. We flooded the whole front of the place. With cheers and shouts
Paul Binford: prose “Lessons Learned” Quote: “Trees still there, but now Dunkin Donuts.”
Richard Russell: prose, a humorous story called “Sheep” Quote: “Sheep … fled in the night, leaving nothing but the smell”
Ernest Schaal: prose “Encounter with an Ugly American” Quote: “Brash arrogant and ethnocentric, I’d thought I’d be the exception to the rule.”
Tom Bauerle: prose “Living With Ghosts” Quote: “Sharing a house with a dead woman … she had the kindest smile I have ever seem.”
Mayumi Lennane: poem “White Violet” Quote: “Blooming, she plays song beautifully”
Albert Sussler: (1) poem “Green Clouds” Quote: “Beautiful if the color of puss can be called that.”; (2) prose “It is a Crow’s World” Quote: “On the last day God created the crow.”; (3) prose “Robin” Quote: “You dance, you flap, you squawk but you don’t peck.”
Tim Chambers: prose, a humorous fly story “Moon Beam Highway” Quote: “horse flies are best … to fulfill their destiny.”
Joe Sichi: “poem of Layli” Quote: “page by page taken from the Shah … beating the crowds. a tree is the only place where shouting can be harmonized.”
special thanks to Leah and Maria for the noisy cheers. I was happy to hear from many, how well the reading went.
Up coming Events:
Our next Reading will be held on the last Sunday of summer, onAugust 30th at the same place, The Red Rock. Slam Poetry idea has won enough support to make plans for this winter. Thank you for the enthusiasm.
Best Wishes to all for a bright, not to hot, sparks a flying, summer.
