Hello Poets, Hello New Yorkers,

I hope you all are safe and dry after the hurricane. Here's hoping a little poetry might lift your spirits.

This Friday at 7 p.m. at The Multifarious Array, we have:

Matthew Rohrer!

Matt Bialer!

Sébastien Doubinsky!

As usual, the poetry is immense.

Also, as usual, the jokes are on me.

See you there,
Dorothea Lasky
