Sunday night at Glenn Todd's beautiful

"Lower Pac Heights" home with Peter, looking at many of Arion Press' stunning books, some of which, Glenn had a hand in. One of which, John Ashbery's "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror", printed on circular sheets of handmade paper, the poem's lines radiating out from a center as spokes and contained in a large film cannister. A series of 8 Diebenkorn etchings on one wall, Bruce Conner photograveures on another, I think I counted three Jess collages. Really just an amazing place. Peter's new book from Salt Periplum & Other Poems, a reprinting of his first book, Periplum or I the Blaze, which includes early chapbooks; "Hours of the Book" and "Music for Films".

So many readings this week. Brandon Brown and Larry Kearney this evening, Aaron Kiely and Suzanne Stein tomorrow, and Peter with Beverly Dahlen on Thursday. How to hear so much poetry!
