Detroit Poet in the War Zone: M. L. Liebler Rides the Kabul Beat # 4


For security reason, I am going to temporarily  suspend my Blogging until I leave Afghanistan. I have some MT Blogs stored up that I can post soon. Stand by.... I have some interesting  and very cool literary arts stories to share with my friends and interested folks. I just did a gig at The Afghan Cultural House in Downtown Kabul with several very hip Afghan artists, writers and musicians. We talked Afghan poetry, Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams, Langst

on Hughes, Allen Ginsberg and I turned them on to The Four Horsemen and Tom Waits. It was a strong group of artists. Thanks to Ms. T for putting this fabulous tour together. If you are ever in Kabul-stop in and tell 'em ML sent ya.
