Does ‘Nest of Flames’ refer to the Phoenix? to Heraclitus? to Arthur Rimbaud? to Charles Henri Ford? to John Ciardi? to the Talking Heads? to Bob Dylan? to Marion Roach? to a solar eclipse? to Samantha Hahn? Yes. Mostly to your own sense of the term, obvious to you, but perhaps to no one else. And to whatever rises from all of these like the young but ancient phoenix.

RSVP (to be sure 50 is enough copies—not required) or for more information: stevenschmidt@optonline.net 631-261-5631
