I welcome you all to this wondrous moment in my life. My newest book “A Weed in A Garden of Extraordinary Flowers” published by Boone Dock Press will be taking its first breath of POETRY LIFE and I invite you all to witness it. Pages never before opened, turned or read will be experienced on this historic evening. I come barring gifts of opening poets as well, I promise, ones that go beyond the range of the ear, but pierce the heart and soul in ways not explained but felt.
Gracing the stage that evening, Meredith Nussbaums poetic prowlness and blade sharp revelations, Community Activist and Poet Kevin “Element” Livingston, The lyrically conscious and thought provoking rapper “Mitch the Journey”, Representing PHILLY HIP HOP in the building the quick tongued, “Mario Rodriguez”, The mesmerizing tranquil sounds of guitar, voice and passion from “Christine Holt”, from the bodega streets to metaphors ricocheting all over the room Vincent “Bad Stanza”, & Rich Ferrara strumming his guitar strings in song. This night is not simply a Book Release, this is a CELEBRATION. Old School initimate, get as close as you can to the stage, Native, gather around the camp fire, story telling from the deepest parts of our spirits. On this night, leave all your worries, stress at the door step. Enter open hearted, hungry for fulfillment of aesthetic value, this will only be a place of positive energy even in painful poetic verses, we will bond, connect and embrace the power of WORDS together. The audience, the listener is as crucial to the connection as the speaker. I can’t wait to personally stare into your eyes, thank you with hugs and laughter, and remember this night always with you.
