Thursday Poem: Bob Hicok Reading “Calling Him Back from Layoff” – PBS

While we’re on summer break, why not sample some fine reading:

This man, Bob Hicok, writes poems that catches your breath in your throat. His love (?) poems are stunning, but this one gets the job done, too.

What’s Next?

Last week’s evening with Eve Jones was a delight, particularly since we were treated to some of Eve’s new work. Last month’s event with Maxine Beach and Stef Russell was pretty amazing, as well. We’re going to go ahead and call Prose/Poem’s kick-off a success, if we say so ourselves.

In coming weeks, we’ll post some more photos and Post-it stories/poems from the events.

In the meantime, pencil us in for a few dates after our summer hiatus, won’t you please?

We look forward to seeing you when the days grow shorter and the leaves turn… Stay tuned.
