And Nothing But

Poetry by:
BARRY SCHWABSKY


THREE POEMS

In the first segment of TQR’s Digital Performance Series, Barry reads three poems from his forthcoming manuscript of poetry, tentatively titled, A Feeling of And. Syntactically experimental and refreshingly self-aware, Barry creates an economy of language, where each word carries its own material presence. With energetic certainty, Barry asserts in his poem LES Airshaft, “everything turns out perfect in the end.” A disillusioned optimism, truly resonate to our current condition.
