August Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 6:26 am

August 2013

It has been a hot humid summer. Not the best for getting people out.
So we gave two rounds to each reader.  Thanks all for our literary exchange.


Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

poem     ~ A hole in the wall ~
The house shook when someone walked up the stairs.

poems from “Chieko and other Poems of Kotaro Takamura”
~ Two at night ~
Preferring death by fire to starvation.
~ Child’s Talk ~
A familiar clear sky that I can’t separate from.
~ Life in perceptive ~
Your clothes turn to rags.
~ Invaluable Chieko ~
See what one cannot see, hear what one cannot hear.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

prose    ~ Neputa Matsuri ~
The old man answered,  I am never going back I am going to cycle forever.
joke        ~ The sick squid ~
Grab on, the whale said, if you want to go to the warmth of the Gulf.

Tom Bauerle ( USA )

prose      ~ Interview with the ghost lady ~
Do you like rundown girl?
poem     ~ The taste of a Tiger ~
Let me be meat, not a cadaver.
Poem     ~ Airless Wonder~
He giggled, overheated and passed out.

Rachel Deitch (USA)

prose    ~On Teaching ~
The quiet thump of the Pooh shaped stamp as it lands on yesterday’s homework.


Coming up:
Open Reading: September 22,  3:30 P.M.

At Mondo Books in Kamimaizu
Site: a used bookstore and lounge, on the second story
building next to the Bank of Nagoya just two blocks east from Kamimaizu
station gate 3,

Thanks Jose of Mondo for your support.

Mondo hasbeen a good place for the Nagoya Writes these last two years but sadly it is
time we found a new site.  I am looking for a quiet, central location in Nagoya
for our new venue. Your suggestions and connections for our new location will
be greatly appreciated.


Help to spread the word.

  1. Hi,
    I a recently moved to Nagoya and am really interested by Nagoya Writes; I came to Mondo Books past sunday, knocked the door and rang the bell, but nobody was there…
    Did you change site?
    Thanks in advance,

    • I’m really sorry to hear you went to Mondo to find it closed. Yes, we changed the venue to “Concrete Cafe” near there, just a few days before.
      For future places, we’ll let you know through our emailing list, about which I’ll send an email to you soon.

      Thank you for writing in this corner of our website.
