Janet Kuypers’ 4/29/18 Austin poetry Bomb

facebook event header for the feature

    In continuing with the tradition of the annual meetings of the Poetry Comb (started on the last Sunday of April in Chicago), Janet Kuypers decided to go sponsor Austin’s 2018 Poetry Bomb at Graffiti Wall at Castle Hill outdoors for her Austin, TX installment of this annual Chicago poetry tradition on April 29th, 2017, starting at 3:30 in the afternoon. She invited people to got together to read poetry at a place that is not an open mic, to just share poetry with passers-by — and people did go there to join her to read poetry — usually Janet Kuypers would not go to the same venue more than once, but because the Baylor Street Art Wall (the Graffiti Wall) was being shut down this year, Janet Kuypers had to come back to this iconic location one more time.

Janet Kuypers guest-hosts “Poetry Aloud” 4/28/18 open mic in Georgetown

        April 28th marked the first time Janet Kuypers hosted the Poetry Aloud open mic 4/28/18 in Georgetown TX, which was the only meeting like this at the Georgetown Public Library during National Poetry Month in 2018. As host she welcomed poets and musicians up in this round-robin event, and toward the end of each round-robin reading Janet would come to the front to read poetry (that sometimes related to the theme for this meeting, either “ I am not a Robot” or “Two Parades”), while reading material from her performance art collection book “Chapter 38 v1”. During the second round, she even sang a song with John on guitar that appeared in “Chapter 38 v1”, and in the final round of reading, she even read a poem (for the parades theme) from her poetry book “Close Cover Before Striking”.

    Because the man who usually starts every round of readings, Thom Woodruff, had a sort throat and could not speak at this open mic, Janet Kuypers tried to fill Thom’s shoes by reading poetry by Thom that appeared in 7 issues of the Scars Publications cc&d books “The New World”, “Forbidden”, “Respect our Existence or Expect our Resistance”, “The End of the World”, “Question Everything”, “The False Portrait”, and the to-be-relased 25-year anniversary issue of cc&d (v284), “Shining”.
