Philly has no other poet — indeed, the world has no other poet — quite like CA Conrad (pictured), whose aesthetic universe is a wild mash-up of the tarot, the trashy, the mystic and sublime. Rather than go on at length about him, dear reader, you would do so much better to fall down the crazy wormhole that is his website. Go do that. In the meantime, we’d also like to let you know that he’ll be appearing on Saturday night at a fine neighborhood coffee house with the nearly-as-decorated poet Brian Teare, who also teaches at Temple University. Poetry readings are not always described as “solid hangs,” but we promise you, this will be one.
