Have you ever crushed berries with your rib cage? Have you ever sung with a plum in your mouth? Wouldn’t it be great if we all agreed that we were snapped off from branches at some point? Our Flow is Hard and The Great Twin Cities Poetry Road Show present Chelsea Tadeyeske, Russell Jaffee, and Edwin R. Perry, three poets ripped right out of the river, reading alongside local poet and Juicy Fruit producer extraordinaire, Sierra Demulder. Please join us for the Strange Plumberries reading, an event meant to make the sugar in your blood hula hoop.
Wednesday, June 5, 7-9pm
Harriet Brewery Taproom: 3036 Minnehaha Ave, Mpls

our flow is hard and the only picture of mary that matters
we had a bingo
the fowl were heard!
I, alive and glimmering like the instants, spark and go out, alight and go out, spark and go out. It’s just that whatever I capture in me has, when it’s now being transposed into writing, the despair that words take up more instants than the flash of a glance. More than the instant, I want its flow.from Clarice Lispector, Agua Viva, 1973, trans. Stefan Tobler
A new era, this my own, and it announces me right away. Am I brave enough? For now I am: because I come from the suffering afar, I come from the hell of love but now I am free of you. I come from afar—from a weighty ancestry….And i no longer want it. … But I also want inconsistency. Freedom? it’s my final refuge, I forced myself to freedom and I bear it not like a talent but with heroism: I’m heroically free. And I want the flow.
