Kathryn Kysar, St. Paul poet, will read at Big Tent, Lawrence 7pm May 19
Kathryn Kysar will be reading in Kansas this week--Thurs. May 19, 7 pm the Raven Bookstore, 7th & Mass. in Lawrence, and Fri. May 20, 7 pm at the East Douglas Watermark Bookstore in Wichita. Her new book Pretend the World is from Holy Cow!Press in Minnesota. For more information, contact Jim Perlman http://www.holycowpress.org/ Kysar's work augments reality with plausible voices from the intangible world. The interplay between real and unreal creates the tension, as in this poem from before incarnation: Dream Poem
Mother, Father, I have everything at bedtime: a net of flowers, a clock, a full little belly, bed clothes made of candy wrappers, petal wet darkness. I am sleeping in the spirit gardens, in these waters, quick and hot. Will you wake me?
