T. Renner Reading at Firecracker Press on Saturday, September 18

I'll be reading as part of Poetry Readings at The Firecracker Press, 2838 Cherokee Street, STL, (314) 776-7271, on Saturday, September 18, at 2:00 p.m. Steve Schroeder author of the poetry collection, Torched Verse Ends, will also be reading. While we read Firecracker Press will be setting up and printing a broadside of one of our poems on their antique presses.

Admission is $5 per person and also gets you one of these hand-printed broadsides. You can also buy an additional broadside so you can have a poem from each writer.

Space is limited, so reserve your seat today by clicking here.

I'll be reading mostly short poems that can be loudly declaimed over the clickety-clack of the presses.

Like this:
A Cool Poem

when the president of the saxophone

lester young said "i'm cool" he meant

nothing was wrong --

nobody was going to go upside his head -- that

he had his sunglasses on so

he could see you better
And, like this:
Notes from a Conversation

Hell, he said.

Alone, she said.

Anything, he said.

Wait, she said.

Wish, he said.

No, she said.
And, like this:
A House But Not A Home

The process of bringing the

house up to the standards of

Jean Harlow's ghost was

difficult, to say the least.

Previous readers at Firecracker Press have been Joseph Sulier, Richard Newman, Pam Garvey, Nicky Rainey, Stefene Russell, and Chris King.
