North Beach = books. My recent take: Small Hours of the Night by Roque Dalton (pictured, left), Poker by Tomas Salamun, from UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY by Craig Santos Perez, Ovarian Twists by Anyssa Kim, Amorisco by Khaled Mattawa, World Ball Notebook by Sesshu Foster, and Pigeon Post by Dumitru Tsepeneag. Read personal accounts of Dalton's work and life by Ernesto Cardenal and Claribel Alegria here.

* I'm reading at Full Circle in Fresno this Thursday, Feb. 19. Hope to see you. I hope to have a new poem ready to go, about carrying Amorisco in the rain.

Lee! It was very cool having you over for dinner at the sexy loft. Glad you made it up to the Bay! Do let me know how reading Sesshu Foster goes, and hopefully see you again soon.
