tonight's Moe's Reading


I just wanted to say something about the reading I went to tonight at Moe's. Joseph Lease was great, Martha Ronk was OK , but Marjorie Welsh?

Did you want to be there Ms. Welsh? It didn't seem like it.

I am frustrated because I was really looking forward to her reading, and I like what I've read of her poetry, and you know, she's Marjorie Welsh and everything, and her reading was torturous. I did like the bit about the translucent trees, but I couldn't bring myself to buy the book it was in because I felt sad about being there or something.

Luckily, there were people who like me there, like Elliot Harman, and we were able to go out and talk about smart things and debate and discuss things that excite my mind.

Jack,

This is Christine Trudeau. We met at the reading. I "googled" your name. Caty claims you gave us both...

Question: where is your reading tomorrow night again? All I can remember is that it's in SF and 505 something.

-Christine

P.S.

Welish did seem a little tired. She was very nice when I met her though.

I'll answer your question even though it wasn't directed at me.

All of the info is here:

It'll be good times.

Wonderful. I hope that both of you can make it to the reading, where people much more famous than I am will be doing things nearly as well as I am.

Elliot H. is Johnny on the Spot already, thank Jesus. I've been out and about all day and have neglected the internet community for a few hours.
