Cedilla V’s release is tomorrow, at the Crystal Theatre, at 7pm. The reading is scheduled to start around 8pm, and will tentatively wrap up around 10pm. Of course with around 30 poets reading, who knows when the poetry will end.

In case you missed my earlier post promoting this event, check it out.

This whole project, according to guest editor Mark Gibbons, morphed from a Montana-focused collection, to a tribute of sorts to Butte poet Ed Lahey, who passed away this April. It should be a great night of poetry for all involved.

In that spirit, here’s an appropriate poem from Ed.


It has been cold, and I
have been ill,
forced at the same time
to pull my own tooth.

Of course, I seek
another day.

I had the urge
while out walking
to rescue a torn orange
open to the sun
lying in the snow,

to take it in
wash it in cool water
keep it on a blue saucer.

I know the sad side of the street
to look for the value
the taste of true winter.

—Ed Lahey
