The I-90 Poetry Revolution Reading – The Beginning. The Manifestation.

This is my 100th post, so it should be a good one. I hope that it is. I’m going to post some movies and pictures from my reading with Sean Thomas Dougherty from Friday, October 22, 2010, at A Different Path Gallery in Brockport, NY, when the I-90 Poetry Revolution took physical, oral, and aural form.

The reading began with me reading the I-90 Manifesto. (The first few words, “Like the highway which we live on, we embrace the,” were not recorded. The whole manifesto is here: https://thelinebreak.wordpress.com/2010/09/06/i-90-manifesto/. And special thanks to my girlfriend, Melissa, for taking the pictures and the movies.

Then Sean read. Here he is in action.

And here he is in action reading “There Is No Idea Here.”

Then I read what is probably the first I-90 Poem, Muriel Rukeyser’s “The Road.”

And here are few images of me reading.

And here I am reading for the first time ever “Paleolithic Person Explains Why He Paints Deep in the Cave.”

And that was, in part, the manifestation of the I-90 Poetry Revolution.

Long live the I-90 Poetry Revolution!//
