This grouping provides an eerily accurate reminder of why we must never, without the proper training, endeavor to unscramble the code of history’s most inscrutable, iconoclastic, indecent, obfuscating, and wildly inappropriate literary ventures! Furthermore, this “panel” provides just such advanced training, should you be called forth. Witness as Lucy Corin reads from The Swank Hotel, her novel in progress, which features a series of sexual acts that unconsciously embody literal and narrative architecture AND Leon Baham engages in lyric prophecy involving pigeons, dick pictures, and Marguerite Duras AND Miranda Mellis practices her Curses  which will overturn the nus (secret) arca (chest) of power, by speculating about the justice-seeking impulse behind several sacrilegious phrases (musical and literary) AND Naima Lowe shares new work from a series of projects about race and the wilderness using archaic reproduction technologies like letterpress, 16mm film and hand written letters, AND CA Conrad presents New Seismic Activities of the Line where he mysteriously proves that through hrough music, dirt, food, scent, taste, in storms, in bed, on the subway and at the grocery store, (Soma)tic rituals and the poems that result are waiting to be utilized or invented, everywhere, and anytime.
