Norman Fischer Reading at City Center

Poetry reading and book event

Fri, Sept 2, 7:30 – 9 pm
City Center, 300 Page Street, SF
Live video streamed on the  SFZC channel at LiveStream

Poet, Zen priest, and author Norman Fischer will read from his just-out book-length poem conflict.

Norman Fischer

conflict is an exploration of conflict in all its forms—conflict built into the mind and the nature of thought; conflict within the self; conflict between friends, lovers, communities, nations; war; torture. Norman will also read from other new work and be available for a question and answer session.

conflict will be published by Chax Press, Tucson, AZ.

 

Excerpt:

“one” implies more

on the letters’ humps

 

in our language

so terribly convincing

they could be so alone

 

“who can help us

 

with our human
problems?”
