so the young and handsome in/words lads will be hosting an open stage as usual on the last thursday of the month and launching their final issue of the academic year. except it’s not as usual. apparently they’ve published more poetry in the latest issue than they did in the whole of 2006. they want to celebrate and suggest we should all join in.
they have a bunch of free chapbooks including one by this saucy young man:
and tell me Mother
into kink –
I’ve seen the red
and purple welts
left from the way
she makes the
sun go down on her.
i’m not sure that’s what elton john meant in his song.
another carleton publication called blank page will also be featured. blank page is for first year students. what a sweet and nurturing idea.
i haven’t been to an in/words open stage in many months. i like the atmosphere. i like the location, the avant garde on besserer. i like all the handsome boys.
i might go and read something from my collection of smut, if that’s the game for the evening. why don’t you come?
ok, i’ve done my part. now where’s my party favour?
