The Full Moon of July 13 happens to be the biggest and brightest of all the Full Moons of 2022 — the ‘perigee’ supermoon!
Full moon. Black Eagle. Toronto. Last night. An encounter between particles resulting in exchange or transformation of energy. A perfect collision to launch the Purple Love Chunk.
It was well worth the wait.
Full moon, full receptive house, many familiars from treasured communities. My local. The street where I live.
To Carlos, Frank, the two Steve’s, and Jacob at the Eagle, Don Pyle serving music, Will Manning at the book table, Aimee & Jim at Palimpsest, and every face that shone back at me in attendance. “It has indeed been grand.”
Thanks for making it so.
NOTE: The audiobook for Poetry Is Queer (Palimpsest Press) is OUT TOMORROW read in its entirety by me, recorded by Don Pyle . I’ll include link here once it’s active.
My first gig in Toronto was a solo show at The Rivoli, GWM performed naked in a bathtub, followed by Anal Pleasures, at the Cabana Room on Spadina, premiering The Battle of the Flesh at The Music Gallery, a few stints at Rhubarb!, launching Cock & Soul at This Ain’t the Rosedale Library, sitting in bath towels at the Spa on Maitland passing poppers for The World is Fucked and Sometimes Beautiful, She’s Having A Doris Day in Kensington Market with CA, doing a “buddy-booth” sex tour on the streets of Montreal (This Is Where I Get Off), with go-go boys at KFB, launching PIQ with a ukulele band in Harbourville, Nova Scotia, and now thrilled to announce the Official Toronto Launch of my newest Poetry Is Queer at my local haunt on the street where I live, The Black Eagle. The Don Pyle will serving music, and yes, I’ll be serving up Kirby. All are welcome [19+] Come. Celebrate with me.
