Ordinary Psalms – Poetry by Julia B. Levine
Sunday, March 4, 7:00 PM
Levine will read from her fifth collection of poetry, Ordinary Psalms. In it she “asks everyday life to help her learn how to see beyond appearances into fundamental truths.” As she contemplates the loss of one friend to cancer and another to suicide, along with her own impending visual impairment, Levine holds the world “close as I needed / to see.” Imagistic, lyrical, and at times imploring divine intervention from a god she does not know or trust, these poems curse and praise the extraordinary place we live in and are in danger of losing. Lamenting that “this world is a mortal affliction / with wounds in the beautiful,” Ordinary Psalms provides a seductive and lyric rumination on radiance, loss, and grief.
THE 222 is a small intimate venue. All seats are very good and have a clear view.
Seating for this event is theatre style, open seating.
