At the Alette in Oakland conference recently, I passed out small mirrors with a photo of Alice Notley glued to the back. I asked people to hold the mirror, reflective side up, under one eye and pretend they lived on the ceiling. The point of “ceiling dwelling” is to make the everyday world strange, to help cultivate the discipline of disobedience.
Here is Alice Notley holding an Alice Notley mirror under her eye.
I feel such gratitude to the Alette in Oakland organizers at the Bay Area Public School for making all kinds of amazing things happen that weekend.
This is video of a reading I gave at the San Diego Museum of Art standing among the Pastrana Tapestries. All four measure 12 by 36 feet. What a back drop of conquest against which to read about a cemetery and plastic! My gratitude to the amazing Lorraine Graham for having me there.
