On a frigid Monday night in January, BOMBlog hosted a reading at Half King, the legendary bar and restaurant in Chelsea. Listen to a podcast of the event, featuring Luke Degnan, Ben Mirov, Dorothea Lasky, and Justin Taylor. Listen here!
Who was chasing me through the brush? He’s staring at neon graffiti and doesn’t look away. He looks like a rich kid on acid. He turns into a duffle bag. The man I have sex with is me. I don’t dream about you. I find your feelings’ cloud. In episode 10 of Phoned In, BOMB Magazine’s poetry reading by phone podcast, Ben Mirov reads from his book Ghost Machine. Click through for a Q&A where he and Luke Degnan discuss boredom, depression, Lego poetry, and Haruki Maurakami’s novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
