Reading — Tomaz Salamun

Tomaz Salamun! is reading tonight! at 8pm! in Memorial Hall!

Today my students and I talked about Book for My Brother and decided that if he were a color he would be crimson and if someone were to direct a film inspired by his poems it would have to be Michel Gondry.

Here’s one of their favorite poems:

 

“We Club Stars”

 

We club stars

down from their stems,

apply polish

 

to our shoes.

We turn around

and sleep

 

in the same

bed. Do not

be afraid.

 

This is you.

This is one part

of the same picture.
