Caffeinated Art # 125 – Leah Noble Davidson, Kira Clark and Randy Darrison May 16th, 2011 at 11:14 pm
Leah Noble Davidson has been writing (published) poetry for well over a decade. More recently, her work has been in the Alberta Street Pub Anthologies, Elizabeth Archer’s Blown Out, Harbrace’s Six Word Memoirs, the Night Bomb Press zine, Portland Poetry Slam’s Poems on Love and Car Crashes, and a few others she can’t think of at the moment; she’s featured around town several times over the last couple of years – not that that indicates anything… also, she designs and researches stuff for money. Really, what you need to know about Ms. Davidson is that she cares a lot about Poetry, so much so that she’s going to start referring to it with a capital “P.” Always. Poetry. P oetry. Yes, that’s nice.
Kira Clark hails from the great state of Oklahoma. She quickly escaped to Austin, Texas and has since settled in Portland. Her poetry has been featured in Housefire, an online collection of fiction, poetry and prose as well as the upcoming book Heartbeats. She also recently competed in the finals for the Portland Poetry Slam. Kira is in the process of recording a demo and will be playing songs about heartbreak for you all evening. She is neurotic, in love with cats and most people and drinks too much coffee.
