“Instead of scanning newspaper headlines, / I spend the morning reading names / of flowers and trees in the botanical garden.” Harryette Mullen reads a selection of poems from her collection Urban Tumbleweed: Notes From a Tanka Diary (Graywolf Press, 2013) at Beyond Baroque in this Poetry.LA video.

An Urban Farm Revival

Caption: 

In the summer of 2010 David Hanson, Edwin Marty, and Michael Hanson set off on a cross-country trip (in a bus fueled by vegetable oil) to document the American urban farm movement. The story of their adventure is documented in Breaking Through Concrete: Building an Urban Farm Revival, forthcoming from the University of California Press in January.

Protoplasmic Poetry

Michael McClure, whose poetry Allen Ginsberg described as "a blob of protoplasmic energy," performs one of his poems as well as one by Emily Dickinson in this clip from 2007. McClure's Of Indigo and Saffron: New and Selected Poems, which includes an introduction by the late Leslie Scalapino, is out this month from the University of California Press.
