Next Reading - Tuesday, Dec. 22nd @ 5:30pm

It'll be going down at Beezy's Cafe again, which is such a wonderful place for this sort of thing, though cozy so come early to get a seat.

We're holding it so close to Christmas so I figure we'll gain some people and lose a few others (we call those people suckers.) I'll try to think of some super-lame gimmicky-as-hell but so-absolutely-memorable avant-garde audience participation Holiday-themed sideshow. (THAT SENTENCE WENT BANG!)

I'm looking for about 5 people (5ish. 5 people and one 1/2 person would be fine) to read. They're still getting nailed down, so let me know if you're interested.

And I leave you with some pictures of erotic magnetic poetry:

Here's one tasteful example

Reading before Christmas?

Hey everybody. Just a quick question for quick answers. I'm stirring around in my head the idea of pulling off another reading before Christmas, but I'm curious if peeps will be around or are planning on leaving?
If Christmas seems like a stretch, lets just put it off til January.

But the upside of having it around Christmas is that we can all dress up like different Santa Clauses.

I've had a lot of people tell me they're interested in reading, so start giving me some for-sures and I'll chisel you onto my list of readers. My list is made out of gold - hence the chisel.

Hope to hear from you guys.

I'm glad they're around to serve and protect.

The story is that the girl called the cop a name when they confiscated her shoes. Naturally, this is the only response to such an obviously dangerous assault like name calling. And it's a damn good thing this guy had back-up...goodness knows what the teenaged girl would have done had there not been two, large, male, adult police officers there to handle her. And it's a good thing she has hair to get hold of; how else would he ever have gotten her off the floor had she not?

And cops wonder why we're "unduly afraid" of them...

New Blog Duh & How the Reading Went

Why hello.
I started a blog so that we can bind together to form a more perfect union.
If I like you and you're interested in contributing content, and or posting event information, and you're not a total d-bag - let me know and I'll figure out how to do that & shit.

I also plan on linking to everyone's blogs so that everyone can know who is a part of us, so once again, fill me in.

AND THIS JUST GOES TO SAY: As far as "who is a part of us" - it's always fluid, and the amount of your involvement is up to you. It's not like we have secret meetings in the woods, or wear cloaks or anything. SPS is the vehicle for packaging and distributing poetry to the community, and you are a part when you want to be a part of that. So none of this "I'm not a part of your club because I don't know the secret handshake" stuff. If you'd like to join in the fun, talk to me about it and read the blog. Calling it a "society" is just to spoof on that one movie we all had to watch in high school.

The reading last Monday, Nov. 16th at Beezy's Cafe was a tremendous success, guys. Ian, Iain, Nick, Andrew, Tony, Jamie & Theresa (also goes by "myself") read their work. If you made it out, thanks again! We had a great audience who didn't text message on their cellphones and were interested in hearing poetry. We packed out the place!

Immediately afterward (literally) I had people saying they wanted to read their work next time, so to me, it really went as well as it could have.
"Next time" might be in December before Christmas, if we can pull it off (which I'd say we can.) I'd love to find fresh meat and maybe have a few of the same voices we had last time.

Thanks everyone for being so devilishly attractive and wonderful. I look forward to getting acquainted with your majesty more and more.
