Emily Pettit and Lauren Ireland

When: Fri., March 16, 7 p.m. 2012

You say you cannot help yourself. Swan in a sad swamp./ You are such an ambulance stuck in traffic. Disparate images bump against each other in the poetry of Emily Pettit, shaking hidden emotions out of the spaces between. The Massachusetts-based poet and editor joins fellow poet Lauren Ireland, of San Francisco, on Friday, Mar. 16, at Book Zoo (14 Glen Ave., Oakland) for a reading hosted by Small Press Distribution's Clay Banes. 7 p.m., free. 510-654-2665 or
