Poet James Brunton will read from his new book, Opera TV ~

“Some art tells us there is always more. Some art tells us this isn’t enough.”The asylum. The classroom. The highway at night. OPERA ON TV travels through diverse landscapes via diverse forms—from prose blocks to lists to transcripts. These poetic experiments blend explorations of queer, trans, and feminist aesthetics and politics with
musicality and lyricism.


No matter the subject, the passion with which Brunton handles his obsessions makes each
one of these poems a love poem.” —Jericho Brown

At once disarmingly personal and alarmingly alert to our political and historical moment.”
Kwame Dawes

His poems, relentlessly playful and remarkably exact, unearth every good thing we have
loved, lost, and likely misunderstood.” — Stacey Waite
