An evening of poetry to celebrate two important new collections.

Michael Dickman’s intuitive, agile verse captures us in its unusual pulse. Image-driven and shape-driven, the poems of Days & Days touch on parenthood, childhood, local natural habitats, graffiti culture, roses, and romantic love. Throughout, Dickman meets the brutality, banality, and strange beauty of the quotidian with a level gaze. Poet and anthropologist Nomi Stone explores the surprising world of war games in mock Middle Eastern villages in which the U.S. military trains. With deft lyrical attention, these documentary poems reveal the nuanced culture and violence of the war machine.
