George Leake runs the production company Ars Notoria, as well as Pull Down Press. He has published several chapbooks including Blood and Chocolate, Tacit Notes, Nine Nocturnes, and The Hedgepig Agonistes. His latest offering is the lush, heady and thoroughly bewitching Coeur.  He has produced many outstanding literary events and readings around town including such memorable events as WAR TRANCE at Hyde Park Theatre, featuring UT’s own giants, Douglass Parker and Tom Cable.

He will be reading from Coeur at

 12th Street Books, Thursday February 26th, at 7pm.

An excerpt from Coeur:

down to the footpath-scuttling in the brush

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

scarlet tree bellowing-here is the track

where blossoms engorged assert and express

longing for joining, crush fallen whisper

utters we can’t, you won’t, what will they say

nothing from everything, what shall we reap

a glance, a word, a kiss, day unto night

grey beyond windows, a plain wooden chair
