Jack Cooper to Guest at SpokenWord Paris July 1st–Monday’s Theme: Frustration

Paris 21 January 2019 (2)John Jack Jackie (Edward) Cooper comes from New York. Currently alive and living in Paris, he has — not necessarily in the following order — been a puppet (entirely in self-defense), a sometime pauper, always wanted to be a pirate, been frequently a pawn (though, for the most part, unwillingly), abdicated even the thought of ever becoming king, and is now settled in the one constant role left to him and endured throughout — a poet. He is the creator of These Are Aphorithms (https://aphorithms.blogspot.com), author of Ten (Poets Wear Prada, 2012), Ten … More (Poets Wear Prada, 2016), and translator of Wax Women, with French texts of the original poems by Jean-Pierre Lemesle (International Art Office: Paris, 1985). His work has appeared widely, in print and online. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he is editor and co-publisher of Poets Wear Prada, a small press based in Hoboken, New Jersey.
