Brooklyn — The monthly Bushwick reading series Stain of Poetry featured Julie Doxsee, Curtis Jensen, Jennifer Karmin, Eric Lindley, Ben Mirov and Peter Spagnuolo last Friday, August 27th. Ana Božičević and Amy King generally curate and host the series; however, on this night, they turned hosting duties over to Christie Ann Reynolds, Erika Moya and myself.

Instead of reading from his recently released book, Ghost Machine, or his chapbook, I is to Vorticism, frequent Coldfront contributor Mirov delighted the crowd with new poems:

1. Kiss On the Purplish Light
2. Take the Ruby
3. Mr. Squiggles
4. The New Feeling is the Same as the Old Feeling Only Worse
5. Dear Eyes that Behold Everything Written in the Human Empty
6. Brief Account of Women
7. Poems Like Eyes Stare Out of the Nothingness
8. Posthumous List
