Dottie G & Michael V at the AUG & more fun for National Poetry Month

April 19, 2011

Last Saturday offered lots of National Poetry month fun in Ventura County! I made it out to Carol Henry’s Gallery where a few of her friends read their own work plus Pablo Neruda in English and in Spanish and I read some of my poetry from too including this Easter lily poem for Horace Bristol and Taxes. Then we went over to Art City where Kevin Carman’s poetry is literally painted on the walls as well as on more portable artworks.

There’s still time to celebrate National Poetry Month!

For Allen Ginsberg by Dottie Grossman

Among other things,
thanks for explaining
how the generous death
of old trees
forms
the red powdered floor
of the forest.

Tonight, Tuesday April 19, I’m looking forward to tonight’s performance at the Ventura Artists Union Gallery by poet Dottie Grossman with musical improv responses by Michael Vlatkovich. It’s free but they pass the hat; an open mic follows. You can read a few examples of Dottie’s poetry below.

Tomorrow I’ll be Cynthia Killion’s guest on KKZZ 1400 radio in the 11 o’clock hour to discuss National Poetry month in the context of my broadsides, poetry and art prints now showing at Kama Sutra Closet in the El Jardin Courtyard on Main in downtown Ventura.   I’ll also probably read a poem or three.

So break out a poem and join in the fun!

I have to tell you by Dottie Grossman

I have to tell you,
there are times when
the sun strikes me
like a gong,
and I remember everything,
even your ears.

    Many thanks for mentioning us in your blog, which I just got to see. It’s always such fun to be with the Tuesday Night Poets.

    Best regards,
    Dottie
