April Fools Day

pismo3 016

My next reading is Friday night in New Mexico. I am staying with my friend Darlene and doing a reading at Bookworks.

One of the first times I was in New Mexico, I went with my son Steve. Because of the song, “Albuquerque,” by Weird Al we needed to stay at the Holiday Inn and we needed to eat donuts. We had a good time at the Holiday Inn and even swam in the pool and in the morning we went shopping for glazed donuts. Steve and I have had some good times travelling. He usually forgot his underwear, socks, and toothbrush and could arrive almost anywhere with nothing but the clothes on his back and a guitar. We had some good times and this summer we are all going to meet up in Hawaii.

Kate Gale, The Goldilocks Zone
Start: 04/04/2014 7:00 pm
Goldilocks Zone explores the inventions of bridges, condoms, fireworks, and glass weaved into the stories of creative people teetering on the brink of disaster. But those lives are also immersed in light, love, joy, and madness, all the elements of a rich and wild inventive life.
Welcome to Kate Gale’s world. There are glass houses, a glass orchestra, sex on the roof.
“Kate Gale knows her Bible and plays whatever music she wants on that musical instrument–but her musica is always fresh, and it achieves wisdom.”–Ilya Kaminsky, author of Dancing in Odessa
“The clipped jumpy rhythm of these poems with their sudden bursts of syntax prove repeatedly that Kate Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own. She is also refreshingly out of step with today’s poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.”–Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate
Kate Gale is the managing editor and a member of the board of directors for Red Hen Press. She teaches in the low-residency MFA program at the University of Nebraska. Kate is author and editor of several books, including Mating Season and Fishers of Men, and her work has been published in a variety of literary journals.
