Poets Ronald Sauer & Robert Anbian
open mic follows
Ron Sauer is a native New Yorker and a leading light of the North Beach art and poetry scene, known for trenchant social satires and poignant love poems and for translations of Baudelaire, Aloysius Betrand, and Jacques Prevert. A troubadour of urban America, Sauer is a musician, collagist, art collector, teacher of film history and literature, polymath critic, and compulsive talker. The only formal education he admits to is a summa cum laude in Horizontal Angelology. He likes to spend his free time playing haberdasher to the happily impoverished. He is the co-founder, with artist Rebecca Peters, of Fly-By-Night Productions, which stages art exhibitions, and publishes Off the Cuff Press broadside editions of new poetry and prose.
Robert Anbian has published three poetry collections, WE Parts 1 & 2 (Night Horn Books 1999), Antinostalgia (Ruddy Duck Press 1992) and Bohemian Airs & Other Kêfs(Night Horn Books, 1982). Edgetone Records released the poetry and jazz CD, “Robert Anbian and the UFQ” in 2007 and the poetry and story two-CD set, “I Not I,” in 2008.
Ron Sauer says “Anbian’s ongoing and ever added-to “WE” is the single greatest poem in American English of his generation.”
