Jupiter is not monstrous nor starving
I swiped this photo from Brent Cunningham's Facebook page. He writes that he can see it from his desk at Small Press Distribution. It's my contribution to the In Protest show that was up for one night only at the Berkeley Art Museum. Other protest posters from the show can be seen here. The top half of the poster is a quote from my novel The Letters of Mina Harker. That was going to be it, but Kevin said that it should have another beat—yes, that's what it's like being married to another writer, you get your protest poster critiqued—and I was feeling grumpy about something at one of the schools I teach at, I can't remember what at this point, so I blurted onto the computer the rousing second half. It was exhilarating, like a hyperactive child kicking over somebody else's Lego Block castle.
Kevin went the collage route, creating a poster from bits of Jack Spicer's poetry.
clip of me reading from the buddhist for his fabulous video poetry journal, Jupiter 88. Conrad's technique of placing his MacBook Air up high, looking down on you, and then turning on the blobby Jupiter effect makes everybody look good. I'm at David Buuck's house here, in his office. Late March, David was out of town and CA took over the house and hosted a video party, with a fabulous spread. It was fun, and one by one each poet there would mysteriously disappear behind a closed door with CA and several minutes later emerge with a stunned look on their face, but smiling.
