Joining the Club: The Poetry of David Shapiro
Perhaps it's because audiences for poetry are a bit smaller than some of the other genres I'm drawn to, but whenever I finally get around to reading a poet others have recommended to me, it seems like knocking on the door to a little club of sorts. When the poet is as interesting as David Shapiro, one hopes to return to that door again and again.
Shapiro is one of many distinguished contributors to the new journal Bridge, which promises "collaborations between poets, visual artists, musicians, and accountants." A reading from Issue One takes place Monday, February 13 at the Poetry Project.
