The Switch is happy to feature poets David Mutschlecner from Los Alamos, NM, and Portland's Endi Bogue Hartigan on Thursday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m. sharp at the wonderful Division Leap bookstore, 211 SW 9th Ave, Portland, OR.
By Endi Bogue Hartigan:
All night long
Love and the demolished lot
the old St. Francis building bulldozed up
today, the last of its rubble
All night long the birth
of a child
All day long
the birth of a child
& gifts to wrap
with white bows
From One Sun Storm, Center for Literary Publishing, Colorado State University, 2008.
By David Mutschlecner:
I feel thy finger and find thee
touching the flute hole in my head,
the worm hole in my heart,
that riffs itself, coiling
into the music of some other sphere.
Come at Christmas,
come at Easter,
pinwheeled to and from my need.
From “Enigma and Light in Every Relation, II”
