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.
