The Square 1 Series is a showcase and creative experience that sets the stage for highlighted acts of visual art, poetry performances, and fashion design. It is a show that connects the local community of artists and represents the root of all great ideas.
Brandon Greer of My Boy B has had this idea in mind for quite some time, and is ready to put his ideas into action! We couldn’t be more excited for the first event, Daydreaming at Night, after hearing about all the great artists and surprises that will be in store. We wanted to pass on our excitement to you, so we have decided to spotlight a few of the artists that will be participating in the show over the course of the next week.
Below is a sample of some of Mark’s poems from his newest collection, “Remember?”.
Everyone parades the street,
Leftovers are left over on the sidewalk
While music and laughter ignites
From every historical establishment
Aligned along the curb of festivities.
Wasted alcohol and food litter the streets,
A homeless man passes out from hunger
As his stray dog nudges him.
Trash continues to join
The bird shit that’s stained to the poor resting pavement.
Hey! I was just thinking about you!
So, what are you doing?
Converse with me in a responsive manner
To where I could hardly bear to read in silence
As I playback your voice in my head.
Speak to me in ways you never have,
Tell me your most personal anecdotes,
Text me a passage as if you were writing me a childish love note,
Depict a dream of dialogues with words
That would take years to possibly live out.
To hear Mark Reed recite more poems from the Remember? collection, be sure to stop by Square 1 Daydreaming at Night on April 7th, 7 – 10pm at MonOrchid Gallery in Phoenix.
