Menil Reading Tonight at 7:00 PM

Posted May 20, 2010 & filed under Notebook.

Writers in the Schools and The Menil Collection will present The Watchful Eye, a reading in response to the Torres-Garcia and Cattelan exhibitions, tonight at 7:00 PM in the museum foyer. The reading will feature both WITS students and University of Houston students from their undergraduate literary magazine Glass Mountain. Join us for a night of creative writing inspired by art, including the poem below.

The Boy on the Roof

Maybe he was flying
in a helicopter
or a plane
and he jumped down
by parachute.
Or maybe
he got lost in the attic
and found a trap door
going up
instead of down.
