THE READING AT CHRYSTIE STREET PRESENTS MAY FLOWERS
Jim Cory & Marisa Crawford burst forth with many-petaled poetry, waft the delectable scents of the heartbreak of humor, the humor of heartbreak, & bespeak the splendid fecundity of verse.
Oh please just come hear two of my favorite poets read. They are amazing & wonderful & so sweet, too.
Jim Cory is a PA Arts Council and Yaddo fellow whose poems have recently appeared, or are about to, in Apiary, Burp, Fell Swoop, Fuck!, Court Green, 5 AM, Lungfull!, Skidrow Penthouse and unarmed journal. Favorite words include: pestiferous, palaver, pulchritude, and piece-of-ass. No Brainer Variations, a thoroughly obnoxious chapbook, is the winner of Rain Mountain Press’ 2010 Ron Wardell Prize and will be published by those good people shortly. He lives in Philadelphia and can be reached at coryjim at earthlink dot net.
