Synchronicity (BB Edition)

Brandon Brown, who teamed up with Alli Warren to give one of the best readings I’ve seen this year in Portland, has some great new poems in The Brooklyn Rail. It’s one of those cases of knowing and very much liking what someone’s been up to for a long time, then watching the roof bounce up a couple feet. Alex Burford’s spot-on post about all things Brandon steered me there; I found it just after getting home from Powell’s on Hawthorne, where Eileen Myles is talking to the woman in front of me in line about “BBQ” and “Brandon Brown.” Turns out she’s talking with Nicole Georges, who knew Brandon in his punk/zine KC days. Brandon, future Talking Point: kick down some DEE DEE’S KIDS!
