moored in the palm of his hand/ this tiny paper boat impossibly detailed/ spontaneous as a blown kiss.

from Introduction to origami

Go to the forest…You are 180 km/ from the ocean, but/ still you know: when/ the mountains are part/ of the drowned world, the squid/ will be at home in these deep greens…

from Too Close for Comfort


HARRY LAING will MC the event, perform some of his satirical poems, try to raise a few laughs and throw in a few political barbs.


…the heart starts   flutters and revs

perfect calibration   feel the fibrillation

order another

take your coffee heart into the coffee-tinged streets
