Poetry tonight — Vicious circles

Join me tonight at 7 at Housing Works Used Book Café, where the Poetry Foundation and McSweeney's present a reading with poets Kwame Dawes, Patricia Smith, and Rachel Zucker (erstwhile Harriet bloggers), and Mary Karr and Yusef Komunyakaa (I just misspelled that three times). It's to celebrate McSweeney's book of poetry chains and PF website bloggery...

You might also get lucky and find a good used book. Look at what Dizzyhead Ed has unearthed—circular serpents!

Can that book possibly be as good as its title and subtitle promise?

In fact, dear Ed(2), I did indeed buy this book at Housing Works (for a dollar!)

Why do I keep mispelling Ouroboros as "outer boroughs"?

Ed(1)(2?): I wasn't sure whether this was part of your Housing Works haul; now we know!

Sarah: It is natural to read "outer boroughs" for ouroboros!



Levi: This book might be better in theory. Ed(1/2), any thoughts?

What I want to see: An Ouroboros contorted into a MOBIUS STRIP.
