Campfire Stories at E&S March 16

Today we had an open mic event, only hardly anyone read. I did most of the reading for an hour and a half. But, that’s ok! Everyone enjoyed it anyway! (Or so they said)

Here’s a list of the poems I read, and some links people shared. (In no particular order)

  • “Rampion” by Catherynne M. Valente
  • “Atlantis” by Caitlin R. Kiernan
  • “Another Rehearsal for Morning” by Joseph Massey
  • “Thinking of Work” by James Shea
  • “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein
  • “If You Forget Me” by Pablo Neruda
  • “Transverse Love” by Peter Chiykowski
  • “Dust to Dust” by A.E. Weber
  • “Anecdote of the Squid” by Robert Bringhurst
  • “These Poems, She Said” by Robert Bringhurst
  • “Dream-Land” by Edgar Allan Poe
  • “Picture Puzzle Piece” by Shel Silverstein
  • “Tryin’ On Clothes” by Shel Silverstein

Here is a link to some Karin Boye poems that were brought up in the discussion – translated into English.

This blog post is one that was read from by a guest.

This video is of a french poem by Brassens, “Ballade Des Dames Du Temps Jadis”. I have no idea what it means in English, so feel free to translate if you want to!

And, I think that’s it…There were some other poems read in other languages, but I don’t know the title and author name’s were.
