"flat sea of white clouds below
and vast dome of blue sky above
your mind is an iron nail in-between"
These are the fine
words of poet John Giorno, son of the Beat Generation and best pal of
William S. Burroughs, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Giorno is the guest
of honor at the Voix
dAmériques Festival, eight days of performance poetry and
spoken word events at the Sala Rossa and Casa del Popolo.
