poetry project + other flim nudes
Adam Golaski reports: "After I caught a show by my new favorite band Verge End (pictured above; a shot of them playing the Costume Shop near Union Sq.), I headed down East 14th to St. Marks (pictured below).
"I first went into the church proper; turns out the reading was in the lamppost. Surprisingly, a spacious room. See previous (lamp)post for a list of the readers, which did include me. Below are some shots of everyone after the reading."
The very next night, Jennifer Karmin, Matthew Klane, and Adam Golaski read at Unnameable Books in Brooklyn. Six cantos of Jennifer's Aaaaaaaaaaalice were performed. Adam's wife Zetta and daughter Elizabeth were there, as were the poets Melissa Goodrum, Thom Donovan, and Jeff Paris. Jenna Lawrence, the famed Columbia University biology professor, also made an appearance. Everyone reports having a wonderful time.
Flim Forum Press editors Adam Golaski and Matthew Klane announced that their next book--following the highly wonderful The Alps by Brandon Shimoda--will be Aaaaaaaaaaalice. Publication details to come soon.
There are no photos from Unnameable, because there was no light. The total absence of light rendered our cameras (and our eyes) useless. As famously stated in the film Event Horizon, "Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see."
Flim Forum poet Katie Kemple has started a blog only Eric Gelsinger won't need to read Love Your Layoff. I actually quit my job so I could make better use of her wisdom.
Our next big post will be from Buffalo, where the Small Press Fair will celebrate its third year, and where Flim Forum Press will have a table. The night before the fair, some Flim poets will be reading, too: Adam Golaski, Jessica Smith, Eric Gelsinger, Jaye Bartell, and Tawrin Baker. I've heard that they all agreed to read good poems, except for Eric, who will only read awesome poems.
