This Sunday’s installment of the Myopic Poetry Series features experimental poet and artist Jennifer Karmin,of the Red Rover Series and Anti Gravity Surprise. Karmin’s adventurous work has included 2008′s “4000 Words 4000 Dead” project, a massive anti-war poem for which she took submissions. In her poetry, Karmin has a way of comforting you so much that you don’t even realize how much she’s experimenting with the text. Her power as an artist sometimes hits you long after she’s finished performing. Prolific and multi-talented, Karmin’s become a Chicago fixture in the literary scene. Joining her tonight are poets James Bellflower and Tom Orange. (Tom Lynch)
