Someone attending Page Meets Stage tomorrow has a line of Gregory Orr’s poetry tattooed on her body and wants him to lick it!

This is absolutely true. And in fact, against what little BETTER judgment I might have, I am allowing this person to ask one of the three questions that the poets answer right before the break. She has promised that the question is NOT, “Mr. Orr, would you please lick my tattoo?”

Looking forward to Page Meets Stage this Wednesday (11/17) at the Bowery Poetry Club. Gregory Orr meets Christa Bell!

In one sense, I can’t think of two poets who are more diametrically opposed and yet more spiritually aligned than these two. The meeting of the minds will be legendary. I can only imagine what poems of each other’s they will choose to read. Christa Bell’s work is so aggressively divine, and Greg Orr’s so tainted with a beautiful sadness, it’s hard to tell sometimes that they are speaking the same language. The show takes place at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery, between Houston & Bleecker, F train to Second Ave, or 6 train to Bleecker). Admission is $12/$6 students.

When you start scaring little girls on motor scooters, it’s time to go home. I just wish I could have yelled out my warning in the form of a haiku.

Where is your helmet,
Daredevil Girl in Thailand?
It can save your life!

So far, Bangkok has been wonderful. A great way to spend two days after surviving two weeks in Bangladesh. But it’s late now and I need to sleep. Last day tomorrow, then shopping in the afternoon, taxi to the airport at 11 pm, flight leaves at 2 am Saturday, home Saturday afternoon.
