The Skylab Gallery is an alternative artspace at a loft in downtown Columbus, Ohio. One room remains bare–great for art exhibitions and performance art. The other room with its six huge windows and cushy sofas has the feel of a bohemian coffee shop–poetry reading heaven.
The evening I was there featured an electrifying performance by Adam Rose of Antibody Corporation
, a Chicago dance troupe, as well poetry readings (also juiced) by John M. Bennett, Wendy Lee Spacek, and myself. Many thanks to poet James Payne for inviting me.
Before the Skylab Gallery reading in Columbus, I went out with John and Cathy Bennett for a bite to eat. We had time to kill, so they suggested collaborating on cinquains
Cathy published them on her blog
. Have a look-see.
I’m reading at the Skylab Gallery in Columbus, Ohio,
this coming Saturday. Thanks to curator James Payne and my fellow readers/performers: Natalie Shapero, Wendy Lee Spacek, John M. Bennett, James Payne, and The Adam Rose Company.
Saturday, November 24, 9 p.m.
