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.
