Poetry Cafe – Adam Horovitz

Last night at Poetry Cafe one of the main poetry thingys I have been attending we had a blinding headline poet called Adam Horovitz. During his reading I got the chill and the tingle and so actually parted with cash for a pamphlet containing a poem that made me want to cry.

The Great Unlearning.

Know if you know me – you also know that I basically don’t buy poetry – unless there is a contributors copy where I don’t have to pay postage and packaging I don’t even have copies of my own poems – I don’t buy the journals or anything. I am basically a culture thicky, the scientist ingressing and yes I don’t read much poetry – this is because I will only bother reading something where I have heard some of the poems and have had the tingle.

Anyway I am digressing as I always do!

Basically I really liked this guys poems and I got to read too :) In the open mic! I read Alphabet Soup and Summer Sale – though I felt very fatigued yesturday and had trouble not shaking which sucked big time and I felt it reflected in how well I read :(

I also got to announce WoPoWriMo (World Poetry Writing Month) which I need to do a whole post about but basically – February is the month of poetry and the month of poetry is February.

It’s a writing challenge – if your intrested do click through to have a butchers :)

Also next month I am going to be doing a mini showcase at Poetry Cafe of my work. I am of course excited about this and hope that some peeps might actually want to come and see me :)
