Cake and Poetry – open mic poetry night

Page Not Found celebrates the year ending with a very special evening. From artist Daisy Madden-Wells: “’Of all the art forms, poetry is the most economical. It is the one which is the most secret, which requires the least physical labor, the least material, and the one which can be done between shifts, in the hospital pantry, on the subway, and on scraps of surplus paper.’ (Audre Lorde) Marie Antoinette, fatally misinformed, truly believed that cake was not a luxury. Just, that the peasants preferred bread, and its lack there-of was causing the revolts — picture her confusion at their reluctance to manger the abundant brioche she imagined! (allegedly) In the utterly incongruous comparison of these instances, let us enjoy the entirely appropriate marriage of their subjects. Let us be poets and let us eat cake! Proposing a totally non-hierarchical poetry reading night — from a haiku you dreamt in the shower, to your favourite song lyrics, to Homer, Angelou or Cooper-Clarke, to the love letter you never sent — it is all welcomed, all desired. Additionally, no discrimination or snobbery will be exhibited whether you bring home-baked goods or an Albert Heijny special.”
