Park Slope Poetry Project
This evening I went for the first time to the monthly Park Slope Poetry Project reading, to hear Thomas Fucaloro's feature. The reading was held in St. John-St. Matthew Emmanuel Lutheran Church, in its basement canteen with tables covered in green plastic sheets. Sarah Sarai was visiting for the first time too, and I really liked the poem she read, which has just been published in The Threepenny Review. Bill (or William Duke) played two lovely country songs he had composed. I read two sonnets from my chapbook, as well as "Heads" and "Roof of the Mouth" from my book of the body series.
