Specials for Weekend 3.29.24

Here we go, the last of the holiday weekends all in a row: first St Patrick’s, then the Hooley, and finally, Easter and Dyngus day. All this celebrating is wearing us out, at least we’ll have a break next weekend, when 2 million people arrive in WNY for the eclipse. What a ride!

And don’t forget to come on down Saturday for 90 Proof Acoustic!

“Try to Praise the Mutilated World”

Try to praise the mutilated world.
Remember June’s long days,
and wild strawberries, drops of rosé wine.
The nettles that methodically overgrow
the abandoned homesteads of exiles.
You must praise the mutilated world.
You watched the stylish yachts and ships;
one of them had a long trip ahead of it,
while salty oblivion awaited others.
You’ve seen the refugees going nowhere,
you’ve heard the executioners sing joyfully.
You should praise the mutilated world.
Remember the moments when we were together
in a white room and the curtain fluttered.
Return in thought to the concert where music flared.
You gathered acorns in the park in autumn
and leaves eddied over the earth’s scars.
Praise the mutilated world
and the gray feather a thrush lost,
and the gentle light that strays and vanishes
and returns.

–Adam Zagajewski, trans. Clare Cavanagh
