I woke up Sunday morning and wondered if it had all been just a dream. The kind of dreaming where it is hard to distinguish the surreal from reality. A whirlwind of sound and experience. And every element falling into place exactly as it should be.

It only happens once every few years, but on Saturday night I separated from my dream body, the magical unicorn, Ma Ja Ka. It was the closing night of “A Poem Is Where The Heart Is…” and the mood seemed right for us to become two bodies in order to read some of the poetry everyone has written throughout National Poetry Month inside the gallery.

Thank you everyone for attending this grand dream exhibition! Thank you to everyone who played such a big role in creating it. So much beauty and community was shared. I’m still frolicking in the euphoria stirred in my heart. I thought I’d be relieved to have the month over, but honestly, my heart aches for more. Looking forward to everything that comes next in this wild life.

April is Poetry Month and Parse Seco has quite the literary medley to keep your ears, eyes, and hearts entertained.

Through spoken word, music, movement, and film, audience members will find themselves connected to a community so elevated in its heart. Stop by for the opening night and add your voice to the exquisite corpse that’ll grow along the gallery walls throughout the month or make an appearance at one of the Thursday Word Exchanges to be inspired and recite your own work. Every Sunday, gallery hours will include a chance to type out a poem on the assorted typewriters and sit in the reading room surrounded by the work of Taoseños old and new. Throughout the month we’ll be celebrating our community and the environment that inspires it through the art of spoken word.
