New York: Book Launch for Michael Keenan’s “For Night”

October 23, 2016 at Bowery Poetry Club in New York.


Book Launch for Michael Keenan’s second poetry collection “FOR NIGHT” forthcoming on BlazeVOX Books this October, featuring special guest stars Orlando White, Carlos Lara, Christine Gardiner, Kazue Kazami, William Hicks, Chris Janigian, Ocean Gibson, Thirii Myint, Dan Dauchy and more!

Michael Keenan’s first book of poems, “Translations On Waking In An Italian Cemetery,” was released by A-Minor Press in 2014. His poems have appeared in Colorado Review, Barrow Street, The Fanzine, Posit, the PEN Poetry Series and Fence, among others. Michael is often seen driving from one allnight Bar BQ joint to another with poet Carlos Lara.

“I am in awe of these poems and their reverberation, contemplation, and conviction; I am in awe of their collapsibility. For Night is a book whose ruminations create space via echo and mirroring—“this / room as each / other / room / forms a needle an anchor a room”—all boundaries porous and broadening.” -Caryl Pagel

Free Admission
