Poet Christina Davis Reading

Last night my friend, the poet Christina Davis, read from her new book An Ethic at Callicoon Fine Arts on the Lower East Side/Chinatown. (Published by Nightboat, who did a beautiful job by the way.) That’s Christina on the right.

Christina had other people read from the book, like Jen Bervin, Catherine Barnett, Dorothea Lasky, Filip Marinovich and Kathleen Ossip. That was kinda cool. A short movie of Christina follows below.

The last poem she read took my breath away (it’s not on this movie though). It just hit me. Besides being great I think it must have something to do with where I am right now.

Or, as Thoreau replied
          to the deathbed question,

“What do you see?”

One
world at a
time.
