The time when we take a free ferry to a free poetry festival and enjoy the summer on Governor's Island? [...continue...]

Come one, come all! Sit right there in the front row, if you wish! You’ll never be able to discern the sorcery of the poets at the Poetry Brothel, no matter how hard you try, ladies and gentlemen.

I’m in the group photo at top right. I bet, if you were to make a list of all the people you could think of, in order of most- to least-likely-to-ever-be-pictured in The Wall Street Journal, I would be near the bottom. Right?

…at the 3rd annual NYC Poetry Festival over the weekend. I think this is possibly my best selfie to date! I spent my day at the festival doing readings in a little Poetry Brothel tent full of lace and beads and weirdness on Governor’s Island. I wore a corset and a lot of jewelry and did [...continue...]

My darlings, I know I am occasionally over the moon about the Poetry Brothel and constantly trying to get anyone within earshot to hear how great it is. And I often try to force you poor people to dish out some dough to attend a brothel event. So please, do bear with me as I do it again. But this [...continue...]

Poetry Brothel

Fanny Firewater preparing for the April 15 Poetry Brothel–Film Noir. I don’t talk much about the Poetry Brothel here, for some reason that, in retrospect, I can’t discern. I think when I started writing about porn, I was eager to keep my “respectable” life separate [...continue...]
