The Sunday Poem: Rich Boucher... I Will Care About You When I'm Good And Ready

Those weekly demonstrations in Nob Hill elicit all kinds of reactions: some people honk and most just keep on driving. A few join in...a few join the counter-demonstration. Very few join both.

A past member of five national poetry slam teams, Rich has published four chapbooks of poetry. Like sands in the hourglass, Rich's poetry blends neo-brutalist surrealism with pagan music, sacred nonsense, revisionist history and "truth". Ever had a… Continue

Beautiful Building -- Good Bye.

The smell of the fried potatoes from Whataburger made me hungry. I had parked my car and stuffed my shorts' pockets with phone and camera and keys and was hiking it over the tracks on Menaul to document one of my earliest memories of Albuquerque being torn down.

I had driven my daughter and her friend by the Stronghurst Complex on their way to school because we had seen that the… Continue

Datcher Show & Openers

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to the openers for Michael Datcher. If you come out Saturday night May 9th to the Outpost at 7:30 pm, you'll hear some of my personal favorites. Maisha Baton is a phenomenal poet and was perhaps the most significant professor in my too long academic career--in a women's studies class she peeled back the brainwashing of my childhood. I also had the chance to blurb her book, Flight Time, which thrilled me. Stephanie and Virginia (remember Out ch'Yonda) are… Continue

May First Friday, our NEW space, Chroma on Roma!

May 1st was our first opening at our new space on Roma. After three weeks of 12-14 hour days and lots of work, our First Friday opening was a huge hit. We just adore our new space on the corner of 1st and Roma! Chroma on Roma, according to everyone I talked with at the opening, is now THE "IT" place here in Albuquerque. Naturally, I think so, but I'm a little biased. So, it was great to hear it from the many new visitors and our regulars alike.… Continue

From London With Love

Hello Albuquerque,

I miss you. It's lovely weather here in the London spring. In the mid-60s with the sun breaking through in the afternoons. I know you're pushing into the 90s and that my long suffering house sitter underwent all the usual and unusual tribulations that it takes to get the swamp cooler up and running. I'm not sorry that I'm missing all that heat. I just thought I'd drop a note from… Continue

Los mejores dias del año...

This weekend kicks off my summer event adventures. The Alibi's weekly newsletter, delivered directly to my inbox, has been teeming with great ideas on things to check out.

For more details, check it out.

Other possible adventures include:

A Cut Above

Thoughts of my father always loom heavily this time of year for me. May 4th would have been his 79th birthday. As I was driving down Fourth Street last week, I remembered the barber shop my father used to go to get his hair cut. You see, my dad had the most glorious head of hair! He had a hairline particular to his family and a head full of thick black curly hair. As he got older, the gray, and then the shock of white, were no less glorious. In my… Continue

If you are bored on Friday

I'll be doing an excerpted reading from my short story "The Great Oz" on Friday evening, May 8th, from 6:00 to 7:00 in the UNM SUB Luminaria Room. This is a reading for those of us who took first and second place in the 2008-9 Lena M. Todd competition for creative fiction and non-fiction. This is actually my first public reading and I'm kid of bummed that I'll only get to read about 7-8 pages of a 20 page story. But, then, I don't think I'd want to talk that long anyway.

Also reading… Continue
