On Sunday, February 26, 2 p.m. poet Carol Hamilton will be reading at Full Circle Bookstore from new books MASTER OF THEATER: PETER THE GREAT and LEXICOGRAPHY.  An open read will also be part of the afternoon. "Would love to see you there," she writes.
From Contrapuntal:
   The Gewanthaus

The Leipzigers knew the high and low
must join in festive union.
The Gewandhaus,
where music flourished,
housed the town's library,
with its treasured manuscripts,
and warehoused linen for later sale
with bolts of other cloth.

Music was king and queen,
but the people were practical.
Why waste space?
Clara Schumann lost herself
on stage time and time again,
while the building kept
its functional feet planted,
striking its own harmonic chord.
The artists surely must go home,
put the children to bed,
bank fires for the night,
and still soar right out beyond earth's orbit.
c. Carol Hamilton
