Jackson Heights Poetry Festival in Jackson Heights!

Hello friends. I'm in a hotel room in Syracuse. It is misty outside and this has pushed all the humans in. I don't know where they went. They are not in my hotel room. It feels very weird that I am alone in a hotel room. Illicit in the way suppositories are illicit.

I wanted to invite you to the Jackson Heights Poetry Festival on Saturday.

My press will be there. We'll have fresh copies of Kate Schapira's new chapbook, The Saint's Notebook. I will also take the stage around 10:30am and sing the praises of the Golgi Apparatus.

Here are the details:

Saturday June 20th, 2009 -- 10am - 6:30pm
