I rediscovered Elaine Tin Nyo’s poem in an old copy of …Is This Free? It’s called the “Ode To Not Having” and when I first read it I was homeless. And possibly sleeping on the floor of Nurture Art Gallery after hours since I had a key to the place.
Anyway, she has done things like raising “10,00 worms to make soil in her apartment; and lived in a tipi on a frozen lake…” So it makes sense that she will be en route to her next art project the night of the reading… Therefore we will need a tribute…
Bonus Cherry Pie after the fold:
No Name Reading Hour is a seasonal, curated reading hour celebrating the written and spoken word.
