An intimate evening for our return to Bossa…..

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Laurie kicked it off with reflections on her mis-education regarding Christopher Columbus, Jess, right behind, with we’re going to get it until Gowrie’s poem’s starting talking shit.  Cloven hoofed and bare tongued, Elizabeth rang in her birthday, Shervin’s attachments trampled all his holy places and Ashep spoke of multiple pathways to immortality.  Xavier featured a Peruvian poet while Amy’s thirsty tree drank of her roots. Marcos sang with such beauty in Spanish, while working in tall buildings.  Transformation is on it’s way and Laurie asked it not be delayed, while Gowrie mused about being the wrong color of the rainbow. Jessica beat back oppression and Shervin took one more step despite his weariness. Elizabeth brought us home with some of her comic bits.  This community is a gift.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

See you Monday, November 9, 7pm  (2nd Monday of the month) @ Bossa. The always fun and raucous Mo Allem will be hosting!
