The January Issues of the Poetic Express

February 25, 2021

I probably won’t continue to publish the Poetic Express here for the entire year. We’ll see how everything plays out. Here are the first two issues for 2021. I’ll take it month by month. As I noted last time, the year’s off to a wild start. In early January, there was a bloody and murderous riot in Washington D.C. This week we reached the horrible milestone of 500,000 dead from COVID-19 in the United States. It’s overwhelming. I’ll continue to face reality and to deal with it as best I can. I’ll keep on making art, writing and performing: always being creative.

Here’s a separate version of the January 2021 SURREAL THEATRE:

 

We taped more new puppet performances in January.  I did the puppets, music, voices and staging.  The camera work, end credits and closed-captioning are by Jennifer Gariepy.  I’ll do a new blog post going into detail about my approach to puppetry soon.

Over 30 performances are available to view here:
