Rain Taxi presents Will Alexander

Join us for a virtual visit with one of the most unique voices in contemporary poetry!

Rain Taxi welcomes legendary California poet Will Alexander to celebrate the publication of his newest book, Divine Blue Light (for John Coltrane), being published as Number 63 in the famed City Lights Pocket Poets Series. Like so much of Alexander’s work, this latest volley travels a path between surrealism and afro-futurism, creating an alternative cartography that draws upon his omnivorous reading (in subjects from biology to astronomy to history to philosophy), amalgamating their diverse vocabularies into an impossible instrument only he can play.

At this special publication day event, Alexander will be in conversation with poet and critic D.S. Marriott. Do not miss this meeting of minds, which is sure to light the divine blue in us all!
