My poem, “Halloween Teeth,” is on Day 5 of the 13 Days of Halloween by Local Gems Press. I share the day with Jilian Roath and Narges Rothermal.

HALLOWEEN TEETH HAIKU

—Patricia Carragon

 

the sound of drills

jack o’lantern smiles

under construction

jack o’lantern smiles

the curse of too much

Halloween candy

jagged teeth

jack o’ lanterns

in need of dentures

dental phobia

your insurance won’t cover

another crown

the economy

scarier than being drilled

by Freddy Krueger

——————————————————————————–

 The Avocet

I have three haiku on the Fall 2014 issue of The Avocet.  I’m pleased that George Held, Erica Mapp, Mary Jo Balistreri, Charles Portolano, and more are also in this issue.

 

veins on leaves

my tree’s hands

touch mine

sunshine leaves

autumn nocturne

Brownstone Poets Will No Longer Have Readings on Tuesday!

Brownstone Poets Will No Longer Have Readings on Tuesday!

 

 

Dear Poets and Friends,

After several years, I’m sorry to report that I must discontinue all Brownstone Poets Third Tuesday Readings at Café Dada.  Due to increased responsibilities at work and the uncomfortable ambiance and pricey food at this café, curating has become way too difficult.

But we did have good fun and poetry at The Fall Café, Tillie’s of Brooklyn, Linger Café, and Café Dada, and poetry will continue to grow in Brooklyn Heights with the First Saturday Readings at Park Plaza Restaurant.  This restaurant/diner offers great food at affordable prices and the beautiful back room is perfect for a reading.

Come to the Heights on Saturday, October 4 at 2:30 p.m. for an afternoon with Michael Broder and Richard Loranger and a fantastic open!

The series will shut down for a holiday hiatus from November thru January.  Will keep everyone posted on the Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology Reading coming to Park Plaza Restaurant and Barnes & Noble Park Slope early in 2015.

Will get in touch with all 2014 featured poets and series supporters for the 2015 Anthology in November.  Info to come . . .

Poetically Yours,

Bob Hart Memorial at ABC NoRio, Sunday, 9/28 at Noon

Bob Hart Memorial at ABC No Rio, Sunday, September 28 at Noon

I will be attending this:

Update on Bob Hart’s memorial from David Lawton

BOB HART (1931 – 2014)

On Sunday, September 28, 2014, we will celebrate the work of this consummate artist and human being.

We will do the thing Bob loved to do – read his poetry, at ABC No Rio, 156 Rivington Street (bet. Clinton & Suffolk), a place where Bob workshopped his work and dialogued with his colleague poets. We will come together there at 12 noon. The reading will begin with invited poets, and time permitting, we will open the
reading up to those who would also like to read. Bob’s publisher, Jee Leong Koh, will have copies of Bob’s collection, Lightly in the Good of Day, available for sale, with the proceeds donated to ABC No Rio.

F Train to Delancey, J, M or Z to Essex.

Hosted by David Lawton and Thomas Fucaloro.

Peace.
