A poem by the great NYC poet, Puma Perl

“Epilogue on Broken Benches” is one of my favorite poems by Puma Perl, found in her chapbook, Belinda and Friends. I was deeply honored to read a few poems last week to celebrate Puma Perl’s new collection of poetry, Retrograde, put out by Great Weather for MEDIA.

Purchase a copy of Retrograde now!

celebration of (new) poetry

I first saw Puma Perl perform in a tea lounge on the lower east side. I was mesmerized by the poetics in her authentic new york accent, the illustration of her skin in tattoo form, the rebel in her words. Tonight, she celebrates her brand new book, Retrograde, put out by the great NYC press, great weather for MEDIA.

I’m deeply excited to be reading a few poems tonight to celebrate this new collection as well, also joined by Joff Wilson, Danny Ray, Walter Steding, Ollivieri, Verless Doran, and The Bowery Boys.

Join Puma Perl and friends at The Parkside Lounge 317 E. Houston St. NYC at 8pm.  (21+)

Night in the Naked City Performance

Tonight, New York poets and writers get together to celebrate the language of this gritty, sky-scraping city and the surrounding boroughs. I will be celebrating the borough of Brooklyn through ukelele, lips and love letter.
