Dear All Seekers Of Happiness:
Remotely Personal Greetings is hosting its second remote event of the Spring 2021 season. After any winter or extended period spent indoors it's natural to want to feel sunshine upon your limbs, even if like Bataille you feel the sun is a cosmic anus, it makes sense to seek happiness and getting some glorious sunshine on the face certainly helps to feel like Spring is finally here. So if you've got the time & the notion split an atom, parse a sentence, question the Truth & imbibe the neighborhood by tuning into these 3 West Coast sun-soaked voices as we move out of the Draconian past and into feeling the many possible futures Thursday, April 8th at 8:30 PM EST ( 7:30 CST, 6:30 MST, 5:30PST, 4:30AST, 3:30 HST)
Josiah Alderete- takes the seeds he found in mother’s kitchen, these seeds of our art keep us grounded in this world of shifting reality sandwiches as our words and thoughts drift to & fro from the land of our Abuelas to the pathways we currently walk, mixing language of ancestor's tongue with languages swirling ahora like salamanders traveling from water to terra to vines of poetry wine
Garrett Caples - Is in the who’s who of special who’s the city shines a light on when the who who makes other poet's who’s more possible . Who is that you ask glancing casually askance at a highschool yearbook from 1938. O the vibrations shaking the hills! O ectomorphic delight! A rapturous erotic ekstasis narcotica is sure to follow so listen closely for the pop smoke of Arcana
Mimi Tempestt -- Knows in her bones it is true as surely as Discovery's universe of Gerorgio and Burnham that black women are gods and not the mules of colonized worlds so take care of the queens that drag, take care of the que of ears, celebrate queer dears, the stags that make our hidden talents shine not hidden no more, but bidden into the light upon a stage from foot to medicinal herbs healing words and song galore
As last Season an email detailing the Zoom log-in info will be sent to guests an hour or two beforehand. Once you log-on there will be a short wait while your email is verified. The "live" event will begin at 8:30 EST with a brief meet n' greet, followed by the convocation, leading us to the 1st reader of the evening.
And please don't forget to support UNNAMEABLE BOOKS the amazing book store who is our live host! You can find them here at 600 Vanderbilt Avenue in Brooklyn's Burgeoning Prospect Heights 11-7 ... 2 customers at a time or go to https://unnameablebooks.square.site to purchase the latest, greatest & past books from these fantastic poets...I was just there yesterday with Jed and my oh my was it soooooo nice to be in a real bookstore looking at real books not just sugar coated confection

Looking forward to seeing ya'll,
X's to your O's
