Covert Poverts Hit the Tracks

WHAT: Covert Poverts Happening ~
WHEN: Friday, April 13th, 2 pm ~
WHERE: Corner of Milton & Hecate ~

🙂   🙂   🙂

The Covert Poverts are back and comin’ at ya this Friday afternoon by the railroad tracks with another polyphonic poetry performance that is completely unsanctioned, unauthorized, unapproved and disavowed by all Crumbling Institutions of Faux Authority.

So grab your brain and a pair of ears, and c’mon down to the vacant lot at the corner of Milton and Hecate in Nanaimo’s Historic Old Quarter this Friday the 13th (spoooooooky!) at 2:00 pm for your dose of The Unexpected. Don’t be late!

We will be performing Kim Clark‘s polyphonic poem, “Three Days on a Train, In and Out of Dreaming”. And we will open with several solo poems, also set on trains or train tracks. The event will last until approximately 2:30 pm.

Covert Poverts do it on the down-low, where it’s least expected, and advertised through back channels only. Like Flash Mobs, but with poetry. By the time the cops come, we’ll be outta there! So don’t be late, dudes!

Your Covert Poverts for April 13 are:

Kim Clark
Leanne McIntosh
Mary Ann Moore
Amy Falkenberg
Kim Goldberg
Larry Gambone
Others to be announced

Milton and Hecate was the former site of the historic grain silo and industrial building that was torn down a couple of years ago.

Last fall it was the site of Occupy Earth, when the aliens set up camp on Halloween and remained for a couple of months. (They have since moved on.)

We’ll be there covertly poverting, come rain or shine, this Friday the 13th. So bring a rain jacket or an umbrella if you need one. You’re welcome to bring a lawn chair or stool, or just stand. Street parking.

Covertly Yours,
Kim Goldberg
