Haiku poets at the next book release party….


Earlier this  year Piscataway House  Publications came out with “5, 7, then 5 / we must tell a whole story / in just three short lines”, a book of Haiku from 6 central jersey poets.

After their book release party, they did several readings around the state expanding on the traditional Japanese form, creating the fuck-u’s, and competing with themselves in death matches to see who was the most insulting.  Here is a video of them at the Red Bank River Read Series

You can see the Haiku poets on December 30th at Josh Ballard’s book release party for his collection of poems and words “I Keep Going”  at Toast in Asbury Park on Cookman Avenue 6-10 PM….
