Just wanted to post up here what should be clear to everyone who went this Saturday–the KGB student reading was a lot of fun and definitely showcased some fine writing. Maria Luna started off the night with some humorous but bittersweet narrative about the circumstances surrounding the funeral of a colorful man; Nora Luongo shared some poetry that moved from that managed to cover both String theory and the streets of Lisboa; Dena Afriasabi showed her incredible knack for the poignant detail in a story about stalking; and Saeed Jones closed out the night with some powerful, emotive poems about the black/male/gay experiences in the South. I took some cameras, but there will be a short delay before I post them– when I do I will pingback to this posting.
