Tim Seibles Reading an Excerpt from An Open Letter

by Leslie Anne Mcilroy

Tim Seibles' "An Open Letter" from his book Buffalo Head Solos is like a manifesto for HEArt. We read it aloud any chance we get to share the power of art to make a diference, wake us up, tell truth: "But why not? Why not a sublimely reckless poetry — when the ascendant social order permits nearly every type of corruption and related hypocrisy. Why not risk more and more. So much is at stake." A brilliant call for art to witness and rally. We asked him to read part of it at the 2nd installation of our Performance Series on March 20, 2014. Please watch and share. Comment and come inside.
