Janet Kuypers’ June 2022 Book reading 6/6/18 at Austin’s Community Poetry

Janet KuypersCommunity Poetry book readings

    June 6th marked the reading space where Janet Kuypers read material from new Scars Publications books for Community Poetry@Half Price Books, which was the only meeting like this at Half Price Books (5555 N Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX). June 6th also marked a June 2018 Book Release Reading of new books from Scars Publications, which saw the release of the cc&d June 2018 v284 6/18 25-year anniversary issue 6×9 ISBN# paperback book “Shining” and the June 2018 issue (v158) of Down in the Dirt magazine’s issue/book “The Painting”.
    Because issue collection books have also been recently released, Janet Kuypers also read (in two separate readings) material from the Scars Publications Down in the Dirt January-April 2018 issue collection book “At Midnight” for the final readings of the event. And as an added bonus to the final reading, Janet Kuypers also also finished by reading two poems from her (at the time) upcoming 6/11/18 poetry show titled “Eleven” (because it was a 6/11 show filled with references to the number eleven).

The Lost Son Poem by Elisha Porat

THE LOST SON

translated from Hebrew by Asher Harris

He came back, but he came like a stranger.
He came back, looked about and did not
Recall, for to him, all appeared estranged:
The house, the yard, the narrow lane.
Their memory sliced through his heart,
Cut, and he who survived and was favoured
Came back; and he who had sworn back there
That nothing would be forget, estranged though it be:
A dirt path, and the barren field and the ditch
At the edge, and the lemon tree with its bitter fruit.
He felt that his absence was almost ordained:
To come back at last, to come like a stranger
With a shadowy memory that was not estranged,
And an unravelled thread of burning desire
That will never more be made whole.
