Facebook Poem 324

Oh 324 where did you go
Who you were I do not know
was it something I said?
Now 323 is walking to the door
Oh please don’t go,
don’t go, I have a cat
and I cooked a meal,
and you are still
number one with me.
322 you have that look
like you are closing a book
Here is a pic of my dog
running through the fog
Please don’t hit the door

Janet Kuypers’ “Meant to do Big Things” 6/3/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Enjoy writing links and video links from a June 3rd 2017 (6/3/17, or 20170603) poetry performance (with Janet’s video recorded electric bass sounds with a bow, and her live playing an acoustic guitar with a bow) of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through June is a Woman! at Austin’s the Bahá’í Center about being a woman, and about what women go through.

    Before leaving her Chicago home to live in Austin Texas, someone told her (which she left as a note on her desk, and was the impetus for her writing her twitter-length poem “you were meant”), “you were meant to do big things, which you are.” This note, when used s a reference to women, was the perfect title for her woman-themed show “Meant to do Big Things”.

    Before the show started she also released copies to people there of a Scars Publications cc&d bonus release chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed), as well as a bonus poem she performed after her show titled “My brain was (2017 Streamline)” in the open mic. All of the pieces from this evening’s reading were also released electronically in an online “Meant to do Big Things” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.
