Reading: March 12, 2016

I’m doing a double-rare reading: it takes place on Saturday night, & it features two American writers. They are: Sean Labrador y Manzano (a poet, McSweeny’s columnist, & reading series organizer) and Robert Yerachmiel Snyderman (an itinerant farmer, poet, & playwright). Shane Neilson, a fine poet and critic, is also reading.

                                                                                You can love a man

 

           more than he’ll ever love back or be able to, you can confuse

 

           your understanding of that

 

                                                                   with a thing like acceptance or,

 

          worse, all you’ve ever deserved.
