Video: Rebecca Wolff at the Sue Scott Gallery

From between the painted tape of the Franklin Evans exhibit currently on display at New York’s Sue Scott Gallery, Rebecca Wolff read from her latest collection The King last night. In this video she reads two poems: ‘I live in the rectory’ and ‘Content is King’. Rebecca describes ‘Content is King’ as the “crypto title-poem” of the book.

I don't imagine you've ever felt this way (one of several ways) (an ecstacy) yet I can't tell the difference between myself (momentarily) and that one over there and this is another syndrome You can't remember how good it feels What can you remember how good it feels? I dare you to [ ] (love, being in love, sex in love, transcendental massage) I gave birth on my hands and knees that is what I wanted to tell you Remember you are the Goddess in the room
