RIP David Joseph Christy Jan 28 1953 - Feb 1 2010

Shutter St. Vouge

In rooming houses all over the city.
She can always remember the past with you,
Laying on kitchen tables with the Daily Mail.
Amongst the bottles, butts and forgotten dreams.
Always with that grin of assurance that
bares your heart and soul.

~ Dave Christy

hello Subhankar--so happy you received the broadside. i love your blog, i wish i had more time on internet so i can contribute. i would like to write a short history of my Alpha Beat Press for a blog. can you send me a poem or two for my broadside? did you search for Kell Robertson? he had a stroke a couple months ago and not doing so well--he is a wonderful poet/songwriter and musician.
stay well,


  1. Thanks for posting this info on Dave, who will be missed ... Don

  2. I was finding information about Kolkata but landed into your blog. I

    found your blog interesting. Very nice content. I liked it.

  3. Hey, so very glad Dave is remembered around the world. His heroic efforts, first for the poets and then for his wife - - may those efforts never be forgotten. They published me a few times in their publications, but they never forgot me, always sent their love when remembering me to other poets. They cared so much about all of us. They gave their whole lives to nurture us poets. They lived the Bodhisattva vow of living to care for all beings. May the Universe continue to care for Ana as she goes on with life, still creating and still contacting the people.
