What Are You Doing Tomorrow?
We’re reading 100 Poems by 100 Poets with Spare Room at Gallery Homeland in the Ford Building (2505 SE 11th) . Actually, we’re just reading one of the 100 but who’s counting: “Just” by composer and sound poet Charles Amirkhanian. That’s a four minute sound composition, but the whole thing could last up to five hours! That’s right, five hours of allstars poems by Hugo Ball, Robert Creeley, Jackson Mac Low, Frank O’Hara, Gertrude Stein, Lew Welch, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky among many others.
This marathon celebration of the 100th reading in the Spare Room series (that’s seven good years of presenting experimental writing in Portland) goes down tomorrow, Sunday, January 25 starting at 2:00 PM and ending when the 100th poem is read. Free admission.
