Chad Sweeney Visits

Poet Chad Sweeney, author of Arranging the Blaze, A Mirror to Shatter the Hammer, and An Architecture, visited the Teen Center in Hastings. Sweeney was a speaker at the Other Words conference held at Flagler College, and our student poets were thrilled he made a special stop on his book tour to meet with them.

Here, the students are entertained by Sweeney's reading of "Karawane," Hugo Ball's sound poem of nonsensical German words. The kids wrote their own versions and performed them.























Sweeney continued the discussion about sound, asking the kids to identify a few people who say our names often. How does it sound when our mother calls our name? Our brother? Our teacher?
Here are their poems:
My name Harkia C

When my B friend Kelvon
says my name it sounds
like “i L y Kia so much!” and
then again it can sound like
“You’re so aggravating”

When my mom say my name
it sounds like “Kia go clean
that Room” or it could sound
like “Birds sing in the sky”

When my friend Rakiya
says my name it sounds
like “Girl guess what?!”

When my G-ma says my
name it sounds like “Soft
cold running water!”

When my niece Zizi
says my name it sound
like “tt Kia me love you!”

When my sister Tara
says my name it sounds
like “So what’s been up.”
Or it could sound like “I miss you!”

I would prefer you not to say my name

When Deraje says my
name it sounds like,
“Let me hold your

When my mom says my name it sounds

to protect me from getting in trouble.

When my friend says my name it

sounds like let’s go play.

- Enrique

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

My friend and I were recently talking about technology, and how integrated it has become to our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.

I am the sort of hombre who enjoys to try unprecedented stuff. Currently I am building my personalized photovoltaic panels. I'm making it all by myself without the help of my staff. I am utilizing the net as the only way to acheive this. I discovered a truly brilliant site that explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure about how precise the data given there iz. If some guys over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it will be great and I would extremely value it, cause I really lav solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U guys are the best.

Purchasing memory is such a chore... You have to Google prices, filter through which ones are genuine, visit a bunch of electronics shops,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then fervently pray that the price doesn't fall in the next month or so.

I've been done in by rapid price drops in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD card for my R4 gaming flash card at what apparently was a steal, only to later see that it had dropped $5 in a week's time.

Hi guys,

I know this might be a bit off topic but seeing that a bunch of you own websites, where would the best place be to host. Someone recommended I use [url=http://bit.ly/aTAtZb]Blue Host[//url] for $6.95 a month which seems like a great deal. Anyone here on www.blogger.com using them?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
