|Me, Lana Ayers, & Susan Rich at Eagle Harbor Books on an island in Puget Sound|
Every Sunday Night, Deb Ager hosts an event on Twitter for poets, the hashtag (Twitter term) to find it is #poetparty (basically put this in the search and you can find the conversation.)
I came in quite late, so wasn't really part of the conversation, but the good thing is it happens every Sunday night (6 pm PST or 9 pm EST) on Twitter.
I had just arrived from an incredible reading with Lana Ayers & Susan Rich where we read poems on the theme of "Possibility." Lana read from her new book, A New Red (poems about Red Riding Hood) and Susan from her new book, The Alchemist's Kitchen.
Two quotes I wrote down spoken by the other poets were these--
Lana Ayers (from one of her Red Riding Hood poems): "If you are hungry, eat desire."
Susan Rich (from her intro to a poem she wrote to me about writing in her studio House of Sky): "A friend said that 'we improvise jazz' and we thought we were writing..."
A lovely evening all around.
