About the event

An hour-long evening of queer poetry from spoken word legend Regie Cabico and poet Drew Pisarra. Both authors have released new collections in the last year: Cabico's A Rabbit in Search of a Rolex (Day Eight, 2023) was hailed as one of the ten best poetry books of 2023 by Poetry Mutual; Pisarra's Fassbinder: His Movies, My Poems (Anxiety Press, 2024) was dubbed "a party in poetry, a wry sly burst of beauty, attitude, and art.” by novelist Monica Drake, The Folly of Loving Life. Moving past conventional readings of their material, both artists will be pushing the genre into performance in fresh and exciting ways – a natural approach considering Cabico is a founding member of New York's Neo-Futurists (and the recipient of a NY Innovative Theater Award) while Pisarra had three theatrical premieres in 2023 alone – including Click, a co-production of The Tank.
