Poets in Port, August 27, 2010

August 27, 2010 Caffé Portofino - Northport

Poets in Port will feature Photopoet aka Christine Zabrouski at 7:30 pm on Friday, August 27, 2010 at Caffé Portofino, 249 Main St., Northport, opposite the theater. There will also be an Open Reading — bring your poems and music and participate. For more information, contact Steven Schmidt. Also there is an exhibit, "Eclectic Voyage" works from 2004-2010 by Kate Kelly at the Caffé until August 31.
On the reader:

Years of poetry readings, and the creation (including printing and saddle stitch) of several chapbooks.
Ability to recover from drastic physical and/or emotional damage which motivated people to ask Christine
to write about how she recovers so atypically. Queens College: Communication Arts, and English that
included a writing class with John Tytell. Nassau Community College - Photography on Film in the
Darkrooms…before all the computers moved in. At least they are Apples.


After a fat new moon stills the day-seas,
stars seem to breathe and
history unfurls a mainsail.

He tells me.
His eyes dance over the horizon, wide,
as if he is seeing Eridanus differently again
for the first time.

I cast a mesh net out over his currents.
Collect his drifting pearls in tiny webs.
Tuck a few into the pocket of my jeans.
Throw some back into the currents again.

The next morning
I walk barefoot along the shore
knowing the ones I set free
might be under my sole.

Modal Logic and Theology

If Alvin Plantinga had used GL(aka KW) or S9 instead of S5 as his base modal logic, would he have had an ontological proof of the death of God instead of the existence of God?
