"think of a heart-racing first date at a 5 star restaurant the back door of which opens into a steamy alley, loaded with Allen Ginsberg’s “saintly motorcyclists” and Kirby’s “bevy of bears,” and this is the astonishing new poetry collection, THIS IS WHERE I GET OFF" @TheForce777 pic.twitter.com/jVVUDisr3e

DORIS TURNS ONE
It’s exactly one year ago that KFB’s first little chapbook launched, KIRBY’s SHE’S HAVING A DORIS DAY, cleverly disguised as a pink bon bon with legs that kick. Four printings later, nearly 400 copies sold, fellow KFB poet JONATHAN GARFINKEL BOCIANY (STORKS) and myself invite you to celebrate with us this TUESDAY MAY 1ST reading at SPOONBILL BOOKS in Brooklyn. She’ll be having one, reading from Doris and mostly new material from my forthcoming full-length, THIS IS WHERE I GET OFF. Starts at 7PM. See you there.
