Polestar in Brooklyn

1. Andrew Weatherhead writes poems on the train on receipts from books. We heard a couple of them. 2. Craig Morgan Teicher reading.

Out of all the clichés, I love the Brooklyn cliché the most. And I know that the mostly Brooklyn-based poets enjoyed the fact that The Polestar Poetry Series changed its venue for this time from the usual Cake Shop to Williamsburg’s Bruar Falls. Sunday afternoon was nicely mellow when we all met up, necessary to mention, in respectful numbers.

I mean, is there a better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than listening to six awesome poets reading? We had the pleasure of hearing: Marisa Crawford + Nate Pritts + Matthew L. Rohrer + Melissa Stein + Craig Morgan Teicher + Andrew Weatherhead.

Whoever thinks poetry is dead should seriously come to the next Polestar. Because poetry thrives!

1. Marissa Crawford reading. 2. Matthew L. Rohrer teaches on a high school in Williamsburg and throws poems on the floor once he’s done with reading, a bad-ass thing to do according to Melissa Broder.

1. Melissa Stein came to read from San Francisco. 2. Nate Pritts with friends.
