Back Room Live !ON LINE! Saturday Night ! February 28th !7:PM! Goldman ! Cully ! Moctezuma ! Durback !

Lara Durback thinking about energy or that space in between every person and thing. And her name always confusing. Never committing to a form of art but always writing first. Talking, music, food, handmade leather earrings, printing, digging through trash & gluing, dancing, yoga. People people people people and cats and public transportation.

Jose's father's name is Jose, and his father's father's name was Jose too. Hence, 'Jose-Luis'; which gratifies this scrivener's sense of self-worth in a world filled with Joses, famous and none-too-famous. To his friends, he is Jose, and to one very good friend, it is 'Josef' - others may refer to him as 'Joe' or 'Yousef' - yet no one calls him 'Pepe' because he still is (bless him) 'Pepito'. His father is a poet/metaphysician, a pater-in-spirit published; and his father's father was a boxer, a dragon given to drink & toxicity. So proceed the events enchained by the recurrence of a name - variations on a theme lost in a conspectus of what JHVH increases - a genealogy as yet unwrit, dim-seen... The present Jose(-Luis) resides in Illadelph, PA

Barbara Cully is the author of Desire Reclining (Penguin, 2003); The New Intimacy (Penguin, 1997), which won the National Poetry Series Open Competition; and Shoreline Series (Kore Press, 1997).
