Northshire Book Store
Saratoga: Paul Pines and Sherry Kearns
Start: 05/30/2014 7:00 pm
Poets Paul Pines and Sherry Kearns will present a reading of their work.
New Orleans Variations & Paris Ouroboros by Paul Pines
As Paul Pines moves through two cities he reminds us that 'we go where we must to find / what we need.' And what he finds is plenty—plenty in all senses and for all the senses. From poems that hang out in the crazy costumes, poignant hilarities, and irreverent reverences of Mardi Gras, to those that fly with Hermes over the roofs of Paris, explore light with Monet and Pissarro, and walk graveyards in the wake of Apollinaire—this book brims, seethes, teems, with qi, duende, life.  
Deep Kiss by Sherry Moore Kearns
Sherry Kearns' raw and probing collection, DEEP KISS, which takes us places most poets allude to, decorate or altogether avoid. The deep kiss here loosens the tongue by reaching past it. Each poem is a deep kiss that compels us with unflinching intimacy empty with possibility to find Eros when no other god / will do.  
Location: 424 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, New York 12866

Eileen Tabios has inaugurated a new project and you are invited to visit and/or participate!

Eileen is the Library Director for BIBLIOTHECA INVISIBILIS, an online library of conceptualizations of the invisible.  The Library consists of books and publications as well as other media.  

Marsh Hawk Press authors participating, to date, are

Eileen R. Tabios: HERE and HERE (the latter being the "footnote poems" from her 2005 Marsh Hawk Book, I TAKE THEE, ENGLISH, FOR MY BELOVED).
Tom Beckett: HERE

You are invited to participate by sharing your work(s) that presents the Invisible (including but not limited to invisible or erased text). The Call for Participation is HERE.  There is no particular deadline; the Library blog will be updated as information is sent in.  We replicate the Call here for convenience and because I truly hope YOU will participate:

Your works can exist (and if there's a link I'm happy to link to it), or be imaginary.  The key is to share the work with (some of) its underlying conceptualization.  
If you would like to participate, please send the following:
1) Title or name of work
2) Write-up on the work's concept 
3) An illustration (e.g. book cover, interior text, or whatever you deem appropriate) 
4) Bio and Author photo 
Send information to, or ask questions of, me at Nalanda10@aol.com
Eileen R. Tabios 
Library Director, Bibliotheca Invisibilis

As it turns out, the project already has garnered interest from notable poets and artists from around the world!

Richard Lopez provides a wonderful write-up on Tom Beckett's just-released Dipstick/(Diptych) over at Really Bad Movies blog.  Here's an excerpt:

 these texts are tombeckettian at their finest.  they are acute metaphysical constructs of our quotidian world as contemplated by a clown with a massively sized IQ. 
by clown i mean an artist of the first rank who works from failure only to succeed thru that time-honored art of having a pie thrown at his face.  the poet's frenetic yet lucid texts move into territories of strangeness and utter delight. 
Congratulations Tom!
