May Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 7:19 am

May 2012

May’s Reading had a good theme of the mysteries of being on the road.
Six readers gathered for our literary circle .
There was good useful talk between the Readings
for listeners to learn more about the works presented.

The Open Reading:

Vash Bandy ( USA )
prose ~Dinosaurs at the bottom on the stairs ~
Monsters like acne, homework and belly lint, always return.

Paul Binford ( USA )
prose  ~ Police Protocol ~
Well officer, does that have anything to do with why you stopped me?

Tim Chambers ( USA )
prose       ~ Banana Republic Blues~
She flashed a smile that looked like a rusted radiator.

Albert Sussler ( USA )
prose      ~ What do you get from making whoopee~
Creating physical contact though ‘skin-ship’
prose     ~ Kyoto Cycle ~
I could still hear the shakuhachi music waif though the forest
when the wind bent his notes towards me.
prose     ~ What makes Japan a good cycle trekking Country~
Any river side or coast line is a public area and if done
non- conspicuously is fine to camp in.

Paul Durant ( USA ) *de’but
prose   ~ Carl Salinitro ~
I already violated every rule in the first paragraph, I guess that
is why I work in a bank.

Brett Hack ( USA )
prose      ~ The Night is a short walk fast maiden ~
( translation of  ‘Yoruga mijikashi arukeyo otome’ )
The wolf seems like a sexual predator as does the leering shepard
who knows his sheep.
prose  ~ Grocery Store Romance Amalgamation ~
When life ordains that you must send your fist on a visit to a nearby
human cheek.

The Critic was canceled do to lack of submissions.

worth it. They are done in a honest and thoughtful way.
