candy monkey clangs for lovely tattoo lady at yesterday’s launch of nod, edited by colin martin, at the lazy loaf and kettle. great readings, especially by jonathan ball and jordan nail. james dangerous’s song about a cat in heat is rude, but hilarious. suzette mayr shares a bite of her sour cherry pie. i am gifted with many pretty things including ryan fitzpatrick’s hounds of love/loss leaders, a new chapbook put out by nopress; and call/response, a collaborative concrete poem by jonathan ball and derek beaulieu. it is one of those magical calgary evenings with nothing can go wrong except the arrival of morning.

    thanks for the kind words larissa. though it was not jordan who read, but kevin mcpherson eckhoff. anyway i’m so glad you enjoyed the call/response chapbook, i’m very pleased about how it turned out, especially since i’ve never done any previous concrete works.
