Remotely Personal Greetings


Remotely Personal Greetings is hosting its First remote event of the Fall / Winter 2021 season. And what better way to kick it off than to hark to the land of the Bengals, the infamous radio station with the ersatz deejays riding the swayback Seventies into the ungainly neo-cnservatve-rectionary still getting some Eighties...that;s right we going to the land of WKRP for a current peak at the prospering poetry & music scene with 3 writers and a scientist / musician to help us cast the soundtrack for the evening of  Thursday, Dec 2nd at 8:00 PM EST ( 7:00 CST, 6:00 MST, 5:00 PST, 4:00AST, 3:00 HST) 

Cathy Wagner   - is among the many poets who know the city absolutely has sex with everything. The Nervous devices we attach to ourselves don’t have to reside permanently. Something about the constant balm of a place like Miami can take the nervousness right out of you, or put it back in, depending on how your new job is going. It’s true that Cathy’s pomes are not targeted for mother’s only – they are unconditionally open to any eyes, ears or finger tips. Her pomes are not imitations of others but like a leaf to another leaf, each is subtly different, as if God were shopping in an automat, choosing sandwiches at random from the well lit displays and then, shoosh out of the pneumatic slot comes a pome. Um, God mumbles as it crunches down upon the pome, “tasty.”

Mark Mendoza- 's poetry is suggestive of the great struggle for dignity. The canvas of place is active in his work. He spreads a score of words across the page like history unfolding in great & small waves as we wade through the various stories & perspectives that create the narrative we often see as time but could just as easily be cycle, cyclic, the return to where we have been, so in his pomes there are leaps to clear those landings just as Mark has cleared the space left by his doppelganger, Mark “the Animal” Mendoza who dictated heavy bass thump to Dee’s Twisted Sister now transferred to the Actual Fuck so that time does warp the possession of now, chasing the public like a stray pug into the net of the dog catcher who lights the neon highway with his electric vox.

Brett Price  - Use to live on Hart Street in Bedstuy, right around the corner from the community pool, a neighborhood some will tell you is the heart of Brooklyn, so it's wonderful to know Brett has brought his heart with him to Cincinnati where he puts his heart & hands to the gorgeous utilitarian work of refurbishing the old with just the right amount of TLC to make it shine & send out beams of hidden light once again. So to do his pomes attach themselves & channel the ordinary dissonance of our times into chiseled lines.
Dana Ward - Is currently retired from the world of Phasebook & Instadram branding where private tea companies charging exorbitant prices for shipping are now safe from the critical lash of this former comestibles diatribist, before that Dana was the president of the Barefoot Science & Wild Speech Club a well-known group of typists & couriers who have made it a point to bring the science of the Native earth-lover in all of us rise to the occasion of our goodnight voice so that future droughts both creative and water-based can best be avoided. He is a scientist who actually gives a fuck.

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.
