baroque basements

spent last night at a poetry reading in a 17th century basement in the Marais--lots of atmosphere, not so much oxygen. listened to Jennifer K Dick and Ariana Reines read some excellent new poems. Ariana is now based in Brooklyn, though she spent a while in Paris; her first book won the Fence Alberta Prize--meant to ask her why it is called the Alberta Prize, when it is based in New York, awarded by Fence books, & as far as i can tell has no connection to the province at all...but the lack of air must have gotten to me because i forgot.
