Review of January’s Open Reading

Everything came together. Joe opened the whole Red Rock to us.
Drinks at the ready, a stage created. Spot lights and a mic. set up.
Nine readers gathered to begin another year of the Nagoya Writes.

Snap of bone and tear of flesh was intended for how we die.

The main character was someone else, not my father.

William Matheny ( USA )
Essay < Unavoidable History >
Echos of the black-ships can still be heard.

Joe Sichi ( USA )

Your art has soul but you don’t.

His impeccable Armani , was the armor of his noble world,

I wish she could help me hate my name.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

It’s the reality I’ve been made to drink these days.

The themes turned on where we have been and where we are going.
