Donc we are still here, on the planet, in Belleville. Survivors of the apocalypse gathered at Culture Rapide, as every Monday at 8PM. The next one (apocalypse I mean), according to Isaac Newton’s calculations upon the Book of Daniel, will be on 2060. Meanwhile Suzanne Allen kicks off, Lesley Wasserman:

“Unfortunately your penis fucks like a florescent light

seven espresso seconds

and sadly your marble lips smother mine…”

(I will add here some random photos including an interesting one of Julien and Arash and the grabber… – David)

Bryan (is in the kitchen) King, reads one poems by himself: “I’d like for you to be the dirt behind my ears…” and one by Richard Brautigan: The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster

When you take your pill

it’s like a mine disaster.

I think of all the people

lost inside


Andrei Ramirez visiting Jim Morrison’s grave: “Doomed to the Library of Sex, there are several poets nailed to the walls… and a few good writers chained together, singing songs…” Sidney, Cecilia Woloch (photo below) with a dirty poem after a period spent in the cleanest Switzerland, she’s running the Paris Poetry Workshop:


Diana Vaden, Claire about the rapture plus London Particular by Tamar Yoseloff, David Barnes: “My head says one thing, my heart another”, Khronos gave me this beautiful book: “Le Poète et le Tsar” by Khronos featuring Puskin:

SERGEI: Pourquoi ne parles-tu plus, mon ame?

LE NOUNOU: Parce que je t’ai perdu mon ange.

Danielle, Alexandra, Emily&Max, Kate introducing Upstairs at Duroc, James, Patrick Hipp to his ex-girlfriend (still a great source of inspiration), Alberto Rigettini in Fuckoffville, Moe Seager, Corey Arterian: “Everybody should masturbate”, Marie singing a song I can’t remember, “On the Dancefloor” by Rihanna according to James (give him credits) or “Don’t stop the music” according to the academia, Hal reading his “The Scavengers”. Part III sees a funny, lonely and vicious Julian Field, D.W. reads from his forthcoming new book (and you will discover his real name):
