Graham Foust read at A Public Space in Brooklyn, alongside poet—going back to our pre-natal, Verse Books days—Katy Lederer. A fantastic pair of readers & a group intimate enough that nobody had to throw elbows at the cheese table. So many dreams come true.. #apublicspace #doublewhammy #snacks

Wave’s celebration at City Lights was a big success. Cedar Sigo, Hoa Nguyen, Anthony McCann, Garrett Caples, and Rachel Zucker read to a packed room (and stairway!). Thanks to all who came, our Editor at Large Matthew Zapruder for hosting, and the busker who serenaded the reading from the Jack Kerouac Alley.

Olson’s Berkeley Reading on an old reel- to-reel Wollensack. Wah’s, August of  1966, a lot of people then and now that ought to know better think it the crash of his vehicle against the wall of swollen egotism. Zoe Brown, Bill Brown, Jim Miller took time to listen. Wreckage left at the wall, of course, but what about the unvarying that passes through same wall to the other side, Jack Clarke called it, to its next unchanging change- ability. To its next tenuity?  What about that a tear is an intel- lectual thing? That Sappho’s knees gave out? That Li Po seldom woke up without a  hangover, sore, empties tossed along the riverbank?

The Patio
I created eternity to bind you within it A scheme worthy of the pope to keep my prince
An ivory wall, have you seen it? there As we travel on the road, together’d shadows flit at twilight we will not be one of them vespers
Failing in confinement. I built it. Where are you?
John Wieners 6.22.69

That is, in fact, Anselm Berrigan in the distance—reading for the Washington Square lit journal launch party at Lillian Vernon Creative Writing House. Might I suggest you show up a little early to a Berrigan reading, lest you get into it with those scrappy NYU kids. #nosebleeds #anselmberrigan #washingtonsquare
