New on the Video Page: Accent Poetry series 29 July 2019

New on the Video Page!

Thanks to Devon Gallant for the invite; and a pleasure to have read with that evening’s other featured reader, Derek Webster.

As I have the creative metabolism of a pop star (i.e., roughly a dozen new poems a year), new volumes of work are slow to appear. Four of the seven poems I perform here are therefore “new”.

Play list:
1. Budapest Suites I (from Grand Gnostic Central)
2.”European Decadence in medias res” (from Ladonian Magnitudes)
3. Hamburg & Kassel sections from “Made in Germany”
4. Toronto Suite
5. “By Mullet River”
6. “Flying Saucers” (from Grand Gnostic Central)
7. “A sonnet is a moment’s &c.”

Set List: Accent Reading Series: Monday 29 July 2019

20190715_140503Having settled on poems that have to do with travel for my upcoming reading, I post here the set list and link poems on-line that are among those I’ll perform, for interested parties.

“European Decadence in medias res” (from Ladonian Magnitudes)

Budapest Suites I (from Grand Gnostic Central)

Two poems from Made in Germany, (“In Berlin, at the Mehringdamm U-Bahn station…” and “Cabbie on Documenta13”)

Toronto Suite (early versions of two of three poems in the suite can be read here and here)

“À Québec” (from Grand Gnostic Central)

“The Intersection” (from Ladonian Magnitudes)

“By Mullet River”

“A Sonnet is a moments, &tc.”

It’s rare and special when I get to share my work in public, and I’m grateful for this latest opportunity.

I’ll be one of two featured readers (with Derek Webster) at the next Accent reading series event:

Monday 29 July
at ‘La Marche a Cote’ 5043 St. Denis, Montreal, Quebec.

Officially things get underway at 19h00, but the real fit hits the shan around 20H00!

I’m working on my fifteen-minute set, now:  at present, I’ll either be reading poems pertinent to the moment from my first two books, or, since we’ll all be stuck in town, maybe a selection of poems about anywhere other than Montreal!

You can read more about the series, here.
