Summer is for Old Lovers

From the brilliant & beauteous bedfellows babes:


Summer is a season for longing, body heat, & (as Eileen Myles says) “a time to do nothing & make no money.” We think it’s also a pretty slow time for readings, & we miss you all, so–

Let’s have some drinks
hang out
have a sweaty summer poetry reading
(in a very air-conditioned venue)
just because.
