Collate one of each page and the cover (designed by Kate Kelly) and staple them on the side.

Go home with a book.

Poetry Cafe at Conklin Barn, SW Corner of High Street and NY Avenue, Huntington, NY

8pm, Friday, April 18

Does ‘Nest of Flames’ refer to the Phoenix? to Heraclitus? to Garuda? to the Fire Sermon? to Arthur Rimbaud? to Charles Henri Ford? to John Ciardi? to the Talking Heads? to Bob Dylan? to Marion Roach? to a solar eclipse? to Samantha Hahn? to a sea anemone? to an all-electric home on a holy day? Yes.   Mostly to your own sense of the term, obvious to you, but perhaps to no one else.   And to whatever rises from all of these like the young but ancient phoenix.

Extra margin at the left of the top page and the right of the bottom page for stapling.   Maybe your name somewhere for future generations.

RSVP (to be sure 50 is enough copies—not required) or for more information:
