Mutanabbi St2016Invite

please contact me if you would like to join us

I have pleasure in sharing this work by my friend & poet Beau Beausoleil,
founder of Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here


I am listening
 to your disappearance
 I go back into the room
 and turn the radio down
 I have to cover each sentence as I read it
