June 19th: the Recurrent End Lozenge-Shaped Reading

We are all sweatily enthusiastic about the
RECURRENT END LOZENGE-SHAPED POETRY READING, featuring the strange, varied virtuosities and anti-virtuosities of Milwaukee’s MIKE HAUSER, Chicago’s JENNIFER KARMIN and Buffalo’s JOEY YEAROUS-ALGOZIN.

Them three poets will read on
Saturday, June 19th
7 p.m.
The Project Lodge
817 E. Johnson St.

for a suggested, non-obligatory but heartily encouraged
$5-15 donation (or more!)
There will be a bit of food and drink.
We’ll start on time!
Expect performativity, silliness, and the opening of the chasm of being.

See you there!

They are as storms
watching TV, watching Ellen.
Their ass is the carbuncle and the static corner of the plaza.
Seeing the plaza, my big black cup
foretells magical emanations
of catholically soft swingset regulation.

Lil Debbie as a cornpone Eco-Desk Light Fixture
Jenny Diamond O’Dell makes a primitive bomb
from Dog Shampoo and simplified sour mash.

Cumming is sustained in every municipality Jean Sugg diddled.
John Pdornton’s friend, Fabric Softener, did an equipment check.
Latest reports are the board will gush hot feathery
surplus into our and around it’s edges.

“This is Vince Grey from Vince Grey Roofing. Walt Partridge told me to give you a call about the leaks in the church.”

Norfolk Floral Virginia’s Total Joint Center
was vibrating like a strobe.
Orgies began that we couldn’t finish, waning off-white
within it’s walls. We tried to arrange ourselves differently, then
differently, in it’s matrix.

Part cum soon.
Part cum later.
Part came last week.

–Mike Hauser
