photos from last night's Discrete event with readings by Jesse and Michael.

It was something, Jesse's work is always a little disturbing, haunting really. There are poets who I consume hungrily, Pound, Ungaretti, Dante, Gizzi, and then there are poets whose work disturbs me but I cannot move away from it Jesse is in this category. I think it comes from his great contemplative sense. In this he is like Celan who is another poet who disturbs me is the best way.

I agree that Jesse's performance was outstanding - proof-positive that Jesse continues to innovate in a wholly original way. The inclusion of the physical act, the movement of the arm, and the percussive sound of the hand on the wall, all contributed to a vastly different and more engaging iteration of this piece ("End") than he presented at Enemy Rumor the previous Friday.

I'm always anxious to see where Jesse will go with his next project. We had jokingly suggested Twister poetics - one word on each colored dot, and multiple contortionists!
