The Other Two Days
The bread did serve a purpose in befriending these little dudes (dudettes?):
Rubin museum with a friend - a couple poets reading the work of Allen Ginsberg, as well as some of their own poems inspired by Ginsberg. Allen Ginsberg is one of my favorite poets and it was an amazing night. The highlight for me was seeing Anne Waldman (another favorite) read along with Steven Taylor accompanying her on one of Ginsberg's harmonium. She is incredibly powerful and dynamic, and the harmonium is haunting.
Allen also composed music on the harmonium and it blows my mind. Here's a wacky Waldman clip, and here's an incredible recording of Allen reading with music. Gad, me heart. Anyway.
Lunch was the remaining three macro rolls, as well as:
Do you guys like poetry? Have I asked this before? What kind of stuff? Who would win in a fight: poetry or kale??
