Regie O'Hare Gibson & Chard deNiord
Boston poet/performer Regie O'Hare Gibson will join Chard deNiord of Putney in a lively reading and performance. While no two poets would seem as different aesthetically as Regie and Chard, both speakers are masters of the ecstatic mode of the revelatory that navigates ordinary realities toward a purity of language and depth of feeling even in these dark times.
Kurt Vonnegut on Boston poet, Regie O'Hare Gibson, "When you perform, you are supersonic and in the stratosphere where you can see the Earth really as a ball, moist, blue-green. You sing and chant for all of us. Nobody gets left out." -- Kurt Vonnegut
Hayden Carruth, on Putney, VT poet, Chard deNiord, “Here is a poet with a truly extraordinary verbal imagination. His poems begin in the commonplace and rise—or soar, leap, swell—to the climactic surreal in a few lines. It is indeed a kind of ecstasy for every and any reader.” -- Hayden Carruth
