Cesar Reyes Reads 1/15/15

January 13, 2015
This Thursday 1/15/15 Cesar Reyes is the featured poet at the EP Foster Library in the Topping Room 651 E. Main Street,  downtown Ventura. Hosted by Phil Taggart every Thursday at 7:30pm, an open mic follows the featured reader. The reading is free but they pass the hat to collect donations for the poet.

In the video above, Cesar Reyes reads his poem “Vegan” during a “young poets reading” that is an initiative by Ventura County Arts Council and the Ventura County Poet Laureateship, under Ventura County poet laureate Mary Kay Rummel and Marsha de la O. The event was held at the 643 Project Space as part of the Ventura Artist Union exhibit, “This is the Time” on October 19, 2014 in Ventura, California.

Here’s another sample poem by Cesar Reyes.

No One Likes a Split Orange

This is what it must mean to be
single. Two people texting while
sitting next to each other;
chilling at intersections.
Her telling me
“whiskey doesn’t belong in Coke cups.”
But how else am I supposed to see
the night sky light up
 in her eyes when her hands
 grazing mine feel like
 coarse carpet?
by Cesar Reyes
