I went to the bday party for Cara and Bichthu as I mentioned in my blog yesterday. It was a quite a bit of fun with some serious I mean SERIOUS dancing going on. The joint was a jumpin' since I don't dance I wallflowered it from the side. I ran into Veronica at the party which is was funny 'cause I never expected her to be in Brooklyn. I think she told me she was working on a 4 page poem and if you've read her work in Barrow Street she's writes tiny sparse little poems so I can't wait to see what her new work looks like.
Speaking of poetry- there's 3 amazing readings tomorrow night:
