David Abel and Mitch Highfill

gave first rate readings at Unnameable Books this past Sunday.

Mitch, who lives in Park Slope, read, among many other superb works, his stunning prose poem "Lonesome Town."

David Abel, former owner of the Bridge Bookstore in Manhattan, and who now resides in Portland, Oregon, read many moving, excellent poems, among them an ongoing work he calls *Sweepings*. I am paraphrasing here an aphorism I have not stopped thinking about since that memorable evening at one of New York's greatest used bookstores:

"At last I met the girl of my dreams and now all I ever do is sleep."
