Vittoria Repetto reads from my fingers wonder on Vimeo


Vittoria Repetto read at The Bureau of General Services—Queer Division with Linda Whalen Quinlan on November 22. I went to hear her. I think she has been one of the movers and shakers in the LES poetry scene over the last few decades, and of that generation, too, that took it to the streets to fight for Gay Liberation back in the day. The poet is also a chiropractor, whose hands not only write but heal. At the Bureau, she read from an unpublished manuscript, my fingers wonder, with her unapologetic New York accent, West Village, growing up on Cornelia Street, in the 1950s, Italian Americans, bohemians, artists, gays, a quiet block where folks lived and let live; and where I think, the poet, with sense and sensibility, stayed. We are there in those hands of hers holding the poems where she wonders as she wanders, sensual and knowing, and kind, pressing down on lover and client and listener too, words we can feel, touched by the sound, it is true, before we hear it vibrating on our eardrums into words. Listen and enjoy. – Don Yorty

An Introduction: Barbara Mor | Lemon Hound

At Yale recently, I gave a reading accompanied by two graduate students. One of them, Edgar Garcia, started his reading by introducing a poet he said that he had discovered in submissions and had since found, met, interviewed and published. Her name was Barbara Mor. She passed away this year, but not before she found an audience and published two books, and not before someone recorded her reading (you’ll find that posted below).


This is the poetry of someone outside the safety net of the Academy. Outside poetry communities and social media. Outside the economics of lyricism. It’s a voice direct from the body. And what price? What price? What price motherhood? Poet? Visionary? I’ll leave the last word for her. You can hear Mor reading below. – Lemon Hound
