Poets Marina Lazzara, Ava Koohbor & Patrick James Dunagan
Three Heads Gone is a collaboration among three poets long associated in the San Francisco swirl of words & music & art. A serial poem, they call it… a Two Way Mirror Book hot off the press.
Patrick James Dunagan lives in San Francisco and works at Gleeson Library for the University of San Francisco. His latest books are Three Heads Gone w/ Ava Koohbor & Marina Lazzara (Two Way Mirror) and Sketch of the Artist (fmsbw).
Marina Lazzara holds an MA in Poetics from the New College of California, where she wrote a thesis on Emily Dickinson’s letters. Also a musician and songwriter, she plays guitar and sings with the SF Psychedelic Rock band, The Rabbles. She is the instigator behind the small press, Two Way Mirror Books, inspired by the poet David Meltzer’s book on poetics with the same title. In it David writes, “The poem is perhaps the highest verbal form of communication. It illuminates and it conceals. It is as precise and as vague as a mirror.”
Music by J.Lee & Kevin Van Yser Loo kick off the evening.
