Presenting Dorothea Grossman

Dortothea Grossman has been featured

at the Tuesday Night Poets at the Artist

Union Gallery too many times to count.

We always look forward to her visits

and her wonderful poems accompanied

by her friend musician Michael Vlatovitch.

Dorothea Grossman’s 2003 CD, Call And

Response features the poet in

live performance with improvising trombonist

Michael Vlatkovich.

Here is a sample of her work:

It occurs to me that,

when I die, they might

find the necklace I dropped

behind the bed and wonder

how long it was there, and

whether I'd missed it. But

will they care about my favorite

color, my long-range plans,

or my habit of searching myself

for signs of rust?
