Feed the starving poets

If you’re looking for an interesting evening out, and you have a literary bent, check out the “Extemporaneous Collaboration” of Brad Buchanan and Robbie Grossklaus (both published poets) tomorrow night at 8 PM at Luna’s in Midtown.

I don’t rightly know what ‘extemporaneous collaboration’ means, other than it sounds like fun. Here’s a poetry sample from Brad Buchanan:

From The Miracle Shirker
The Separate Sleep

The trees stand tall at
night, practicing the gestures
that impress the moon.

You tell me that the
night before our wedding, I
made noises like a

forest storm. The lush
rustling in my throat when I
spoke my vows, the rain

that swept my clouded
eyes had been subconsciously
rehearsed. So you say.

What watchfulness in
that silent woodland did you
mimic, staying close

to those whipped branches?
Did you perceive the prey of
love, burrowing deep

or clinging wildly
to shaken boughs? Was death
that separate sleep?

Robbie Grossklaus has a blog of his own you can visit to see if his work interests you.

A friend of mine says that Luna’s is pretty popular among the coffee-swilling poets and poet-wannabe’s of Sacramento, and that if you get there late you may be forced to stand.

When: August 24, 2006 at 8 PM
Where: Luna’s Café and Juice Bar (916) 441-3931
1414 16th Street, Sacramento, CA 95814

None listed, other than the price of your cuppa joe
