I've written three new poems since my trip to Buffalo two weeks ago! Since I'm not normally a prolific writer, I'm inordinately pleased about having three new poems in such a short span of time, and just in time for my feature reading this coming Tuesday, August 2, for Words & Wine in Painesville, Ohio!
Who, When, Where:
Words & Wine w/ Dianne Borsenik
Tuesday, August 2, 2016
70 N. St. Clair St.
hosts Margie Delong and Tobin Terry
Words & Wine is one of my very favorite reading series: the atmosphere is groovy, the audience delightful, the hosts charming. I can't wait to read in the new venue, Bistro 70!
I'd love it if you could join us for a night of poetry, great friendship, sweet wine, and tasty vittles. I'll have my new book, Age of Aquarius: Collected Poems 1981 - 2016 with me, and if you buy one, I'll give you a free copy—your choice—of either Corpus Lingua (my chapbook about getting older, my relationship with James, and memories of my hippie days) or Bad Ink (my audacious, irreverent, naughty, sexy, profane chapbook)!
As for the three new poems—a skinny poem, a haibun, and a free verse featuring the Thursday Dictionary.com Word of the Day, virgule—Words & Wine will be the first place I've read them aloud. I've already submitted two of them (one to Rattle, one to Slipstream), and I'm working on getting the third one out. I'll also read some of my "Road Tripping" poems from the Kansas City trip last April, and I'll be reading from Age of Aquarius. The theme of the reading? Sin, Sweat, Summer!
This Tuesday, it's a poetry roundup in Painesville! Why not ride on out, grab some grub, cop a squat, and hang with (pun intended, lol) some mighty fine folks for an evening of poetry, food, and fellowship? It's gonna be beautiful!
