The Poets Don’t Know from Secrets

lipstickErika Staiti – from Go, Poet, Go (2’26”). Recorded shortly after the January 17, 2009, performance of the text at Canessa Park and archived in its entirety (10’11”) on A Voice Box (a faulty mic connection spoiled the live recording). Two poems from Shampoo 32. Staiti’s contribution to the SPT Aggression Conference in May 2008. Her discourse documenting project What We SaidStan Apps on Verse/Switch & Stop Motion (a “stapled, xeroxed book” in private circulation). Kevin Killian’s account of an evening of Neo Benshi that included Staiti’s telling of a scene from Cassavetes’s A Woman Under the Influence. • Jennifer Manzano alludes to Staiti’s performance in a discussion of “poets and their clothes.”
