Babylon makes the rules

Michael’s round-up of media coverage on the library blog brought the Daily News’ article to my attention. It’s got a lovely quotation that recalls some of what this settlement’s about:

“Remember the anti-authority message of Occupy Wall Street? Remember the backlash over its vague goals and nebulous methods? Surprise! Occupy Wall Street (OWS) just struck a sizeable victory, and it came by working within the system.”

Working within the system.

Babylon makes the rules, but that doesn’t mean we’re incapable of playing by them.

Looks like I’ll be reading at the MoMA on April 20th

Transform The World! Poetry Must Be Made by All!

Saturday, April 20, 2013, 3:00–4:00 p.m.
The Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Painting and Sculpture Galleries, fourth floor

Barbara Morgan. Martha Graham, Celebration. 1937. Gelatin silver print, 19 x 15 7/16"

Here’s info from the MoMA site:

In celebration of National Poetry Month The Museum of Modern Art presents Transform The World! Poetry Must Be Made by All! For a full hour, the galleries come alive with the sounds of spoken word, as poets read their own works and those of others. The poets, ranging from emerging to established, from conventional to experimental, demonstrate and celebrate the broad range of American poetry today amid great works of postwar modern art in the Museum’s collection. This event is organized by poet Kenneth Goldsmith as part of the Artists Experiment initiative.

Thanks to all the lovelies at Belladonna for inviting me to participate. Full event details here.
