Your Poems with Gorgeous Artwork on Freely Downloadable Posters


 A fabulous art & poetry collaboration project: Broadsided Press: “Once a month, on or about the first, a new broadside is posted both on this site and around the nation.

Writing is chosen through submissions sent to Broadsided. Artists allied with Broadsided are emailed the selected writing. They then "dibs" what resonates for them and respond visually.

The resulting letter-sized pdf is designed to be downloaded and printed by anyone with a computer and printer.

Our goal is to create something both gorgeous and cheap.

We want to put words and art on the streets.”

A Tribute to KBOO Engineer & Programmer Jim Braun


I knew Jim Braun at KBOO for twenty years,  over which time I occasionally asked him to engineer a show for me.  He was always willing, and always  modest and self-effacing.  I only got to know Jim personally in the year before he died,  and I came to feel that he had taken a very bad lot in life--  being abandoned with his sister to a bleak orphanage, then losing his beloved sister when she died at an early age-- and turned it into sweet modesty and concern for his fellow beings.




                  There are words that are so happy to be said
                  they arch their backs, grow legs,
                      and their eyes flash green....                               B.L.


“The universe is made of  stories, not of atoms.”   Muriel Rukeyser

Five Minutes Sweetness
