POETS ANTHONY M. KNIGHT + D. C. NELLES HOST NEW POETRY EVENING AT SPIRAL CAFE: Second in series: Tuesday, August 18

Private detective cum poetry maven Wendy Morton will have to send out  a couple of her snoopy poetry minions to investigate what’s going on in Vic West at the new poetry evening organized by ‘resident poets’ Anthony M. Knight and D. C. Nelles at the Spiral Cafe on Craigflower Road.

Nelles, author of the self-published 138 page collection ‘muse candy,’ started the monthly gathering at the Craigflower Road cultural hot spot with fellow poet Arthur M. Knight last month, and packed the house.

If felt like something historically significant, as Ms. Morton, notorious for her dictatorial style of programme organization at the Black Stilt poetry readings, could do with some good old fashioned western competition.

This month, Knight and Nelles have chosen another Tuesday (in homage to Mallarme?) to bring their poetry-loving audience together.

In an unusually sophisticated poster designed to advertise the Victoria poetic event, a semi-draped nude model is shown with the caption, ‘be swept  away by the soothing saunter of poetry.’  No apologies to Lina Wertmuller and Giancarlo Gianini.

A band of type obscures her backside with the legend, ‘no cover, just a cup of coffee.’

This might get some uptight prudish feminists riled up, but perhaps that’s the point.
