Another morning, another day. Last night we saw a great reading: Eileen Myles and Aimee Bender at Human Resources Gallery, as part of the Rocky Point series. Bender read a selection from her new book, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, and Myles read an electrifying segment from Inferno.
The tirade of people described, bars, rooms, readings, Warholian celebutants and poetic moments went on and on until it dissolved into applause and the crowd funneled out into the Chinatown night.
Or, more like, it, the crowd stayed and stayed, so many people, it was like a wedding or a funeral. They didn't want to leave. There was a palpable excitement. I waited by the door peering into copies of Sorry Tree while my friends raided the hors d'oeurves, then we turned to leave.
