Chocolate Waters & Elaine Sexton Jan 29 @ Bluestockings

Chocolate Waters
I'm delighted to be reading from my new book and from earlier work at Bluestockings in NYC and happy to share the bill w/Elaine Sexton, this Tues. Jan 29 @7 p.m.

"Chocolate Waters's The Woman Who Wouldn't Shake Hands is a romp with a gymnast of poetic wordplay. Waters' wit can leave you in stitches one moment, only to reveal the sardonic undertones of her meaning in the next, turning you warm to chilled with the simple flip of the wrist."
 ~ Chavisa Woods 


Elaine Sexton continues to explore text as “evidence,” the poem as a collage of spent things, words and images reconstituted to make fresh shapes. She is the author of Sleuth and Causeway, both published by New Issues.
