And so National Poetry Month begins

and fortuitously, I'm off to New York City, a place that makes me feel keenly alive. Five poems in five days in Manhattan? Let's go!

    Brilliant! Have a great time at The Bowery, Carrie, and try to catch Marina Abramovic's interactive performance art at MoMa if you can.... I'd be interested to know what of your work you will be reading over there. I, too, find Manhattan to be a place where I most feel this keen aliveness. I think it's compactness, height and sense of being an island has a lot to do with it: like being in the Crow's Nest from atop The Rock! :))

    Travel safe and I very much look forward to what you will bring back with you...

  2. That's exactly how I'd imagine NYC. Have fun! Lx

  3. Hi, Helen. I doubt I'll make it to MoMA with all my other plans; part of me just wants to stay at Poets House! I've picked up Nin Andrews' most recent collection, which I expect will interest you. See you on my return.

    Poets House is a wonderful environment, I can understand why. I have the card from the Poetic Spaces project propped on my desk: "How Does a Bird Imagine? What Does a Tree Know? Will be thinking of you with Molly Peacock at 2.00 EST today. Have fun! :)) xx
