October Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes,Uncategorized — show1miyamura @ 6:06 pm

October 2012

October’s read was a small gathering at the Cafe Concrete.
Four Readers in the lower section of the cafe. The walls added
good ascetics to our voices.

The Open Reading:

Paul Binford ( USA )
prose     ~ Shade Makers ~
I have nothing to back up my name except my voice.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )
<Poems by Japanese elementary school pupils>
poem     ~ Bazaar ~
My mom was crawling through the crowd in the distance.
poem     ~Cockroaches~
Cockroaches are great I think though they’re hated by everyone.
poem    ~ The Aquarium ~
Fish look into the distance
poem    ~ Everyone’s Eyes ~
Looking through my brother’s eyes, baseball is fun.
<A poem by the reader himself>
poem    ~ Zero ~
One can’t become zero even when divided by infinity.

Albert Sussler ( USA )
poem    ~ Cycling the Backbone of Japan ~
In need of  communication, one is forced out to mingle
rather than just live in the bubble of one’s own group.

Brett Hack ( USA )
prose   ~ Legacy of the Maker ~
He winced at the lights of the florissant, like a homesick
cave creature .

There was no writer’s workshop held this month.

Help to spread the word.
