Beyonce, Renga, New Mexico Poetry, and a Return to the Laureate Trail
No, I'm not the popstar. The popstar was, apparently, Beyonce, or someone very like her. I wrote the story of her visit to Marfa, Texas. Well, sort of. I mean, not exactly. I exaggerated. Obfuscated. Made stuff up. But it's all true. In a way. And can be found in Versal 11.
After an intense several months creating an MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, I'm planning some readings and a series of monthly columns on New Mexico poetry for the Santa Fe Reporter. Watch for announcements here.
And don't forget the ongoing renga project which erupts suddenly and briefly on Fridays at 5 pm between Site Sante Fe and W21. Still the fastest poetry reading on the planet. Get in, get cultured, get out.
