PLACITAS--When The Artist Ken Saville was finding his way through New Mexico in the fall of 1972, the first person he met was Larry Goodell. Ken was hitching from Bernalillo to Placitas. Larry stopped and gave him a ride. Goodell was an icon of the Central Ave. scene from the Living Batch Bookstore which occupied one of the rooms currently used by the Frontier Restaurant. His reputation is that of the number one performance poet in the state. And he is reading this Saturday in Placitas at the Anasazi Winery along with Jim Koller and Stefan Hyner. If you are the kind of person who needs a reason to get out of town for a while, this is it. Here is a poem by Goodell from the on-line poetry mag, Rough Road Review.
