It's true: the Random Name Poetry Series has a new home, and (perhaps inevitably) it's Dahlak Paradise in west Philadelphia! To celebrate our new space and time, not to mention the beginning of Spring, I have invited two of Philadelphia's most puissant purveyors of poeticitude, Ryan Eckes and Brandon Holmquest, to read. RYAN ECKES lives in South Philadelphia. He's the author of VALU-PLUS (Furniture Press, 2014), OLD NEWS (Furniture Press, 2011) and other books. Recent poetry can be read in The Brooklyn Rail, Tripwire, Sugar Mule, Apiary and elsewhere. BRANDON HOLMQUEST: I habitually put words on paper, and then later on a digital recreation of paper that can be turned into actual paper if the need arises. I will have several of these pieces of paper on me on this particular evening, and my plan is to read the words on the pieces of paper, perhaps out loud. Free. Write firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
