Another Attempt at Naked Words

M. L. Smoker was the featured reader last night at Miller's Crossing. She presented fine renditions of poems from ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT RESCUE (Hanging Loose Press, 2005) along with one new poem. I've been referring to ANOTHER ATTEMPT as the most significant collection of poetry to appear in Montana since James Welch's RIDING THE EARTHBOY 40, and I guess I'm probably right.

Also reading on the card: Rob Schlegel, from Missoula, and Kate Cholewa of Helena.

Not much time for open mike people, but Scott Walter and Brynn Holt threw in their 2 and 3 cents, respectively. Just kidding--their poems were worth millions . . . of something. Posted by Picasa
