This Thursday, we'll be discussing selected passages from the work of Lola Ridge.
Here's a poem we'll be looking at:
WALL STREET AT NIGHTWe'll also be mining the synesthetic or/e generated by our in-the-field poetypists. Positions are available in our Poetypist pool! We're transcribing immediate worldly sensations into the imagination using typing machines in public locations all summer. See the previous post for more details. Send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long vast shapes . . . cooled and flushed through with darkness . . .
Glazed with a flashy luster
From some little pert cafe chirping up like a sparrow.
And down among iron guts
Throwing gray spatter of light . . . pale without heat . . .
Like the pallor of dead bodies.
Join us! Everything is waiting.
