Have you missed me? Some MoMA pics and event announcements!

Have you missed my blog posts? I’ve been busy.
Last Saturday I read at MoMA in an orange dress. The first photo is by Toni Simon, who so deftly captured the moment! I did spend a bit of time reading from the floor, yes. MoMAwas a difficult reading environment, with miserable acoustics and shifting audiences, and afterwards I was quite spent, and could only sit on my bed eating blueberries.

Here I stand in front of Donald Judd’s UNTITLED(STACK) 1967…The Museum of Modern Art staged a poetry event entitled Transform The World! Poetry Must Be Made By All! as part of Kenneth Goldsmith’s Poet Laureate program. 4th Floor Painting and Sculpture II.

BUT IN CASE YOU MISSED THE MoMA festivities, don’t despair! Next week there are two more events at which I shall make appearances.

The first is Monday April 29 at 6:30:
