Erotic Poetry for the late Valentine
Tonight the Nevada County Poetry Series celebrates the fine art of love. It will be a night of erotic encounters, mistakes and misadventures – a night for the amorous to share their secrets. Bill Gainer says, “When Cupid draws back his bow the poets Will Staple, Marilyn Souza, Christine Irving and Laura Pendell will be handing him the arrows. What better way to share a night of love than with the talents of four of Nevada County’s true romantics?” Be warned, with love often comes adult content.
Will Staple; the liar that always tells the truth, the thief that gives everything away, guilty of miracles and wondrous crimes will be reading not only from the One That Got Away and Roxy, but from his international award winning books: I Hate the Men You Sleep With and Numinous Luminousity – plus other new and uncollected works of wonder and mystery.
Marilyn Souza’s poetry is raw, sensual and almost violent at times; leaving the reader with a sense of wonderment, curiosity, and
bloodlust. She’s got a poem for every man she’s ever thought she loved. However, she believes the best poetry, is better left unspoken. So come on down and read between her lines.
Christine Irving wrote her first erotic poem as a dare, the forfeit shall remain unnamed, but let it be clear – she won! Irving admits,
“Reading the words aloud proved to be another challenge.” As found out though, an audience ready for pillow talk can be warm, eager, receptive and exciting. Everything one wants in an appreciative lover.
Laura Pendell grew up in New York City. She moved to Nevada County 11 years ago to explore poetry, plants and alternative lifestyles (known as sex, drugs and rock’n’roll). So far, she hasn’t been disappointed.
The reading and open-mic will be videoed for presentation on Nevada County TV, Channel 11.
