I picked up a copy of Sampson Starkweather's City of Moths on Friday at the Earshot Reading. I ran into Niina there who has a pretty good summation of the reading here.
I had to work on Saturday and then came home and went to bed early.
Yeah I'm exciting that way.
Sunday I ate brunch at Cafe Olea, worked on poems, hung out with deep disco (roommate) & then watched Rashomon.
I'm going to the Poets & Writers reading/party tonight in DUMBO (see previous post for info).
Wednesday, the ever affable Mark Bibbins is reading along with John Deming.
