Great to meet Mark Lamoureux finally. He gave an energized reading at the Bowery Poetry Club last Saturday. He began with a poem dedicated to Rachel Corrie & ended with a strong long piece published in a chapbook I meant to pick up before I left. Alas, I split to Williamsburg for a wonderful show that includes an amazing piece called "Southern Climates" by Jonathan Allen- collaged Guantanamo detainees umbrellaed by stars & bars.
Mark, can I still get that chap?
Check out Drew Gardner's review of our Segue reading. Thanks so much to Brenda Iijima for the invite and the thoughtful introduction! She remains a poetry champion.
Also, Mark has four new poems on Adam Fieled's PFS Post. Check them out.
