I’m excited to share a new poem, the outcome of a creative audience interaction at Pulp Fiction Coffee House on Saturday night. It’s uncanny how the words of strangers pull together into the feel and intent of this poem.
The event, one of 60 Artists in 60 Spaces celebrating ARTSCO’s 60th anniversary, was well attended and lively. Poetry readings, conversation, and a beautiful atmosphere created by musician Dörte Meyer, made for a memorable evening.
Here then is the poem, aptly titled Anfänger schrumplig, Du bist schön ~ wrinkly beginner, you are beautiful.
Thanks again to ARTSCO and Westbank First Nation for the creative support and opportunity, ARTSCO President Cheryl Miller for a kind introduction, Pulp Fiction for hosting in their unique literary space, Dörte Meyer for calming presence, and everyone who came out and participated.
