Just in time for Halloween, Edgar brought the house down last night with a performance of the monologue “Mother Was a Hit-Run Driver,” taken from his play Motel Blue 19.
This performance took place at the Howl Happening Gallery, 6 East 1st St. The performance was part of a series titled Secrets of the Great Pyramid: The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge as Cultural Laboratory.

Edgar Oliver and the Octave Doktors perform at Nhà Minh in Brooklyn, Sunday October 18.

Labor Day marked the end of summer. We have a poem for that.
The end of the summer is here again.
I feel the same melancholy I have felt
since I first knew summers ended –
the melancholy of the crickets’ valiant singing
in the early coming dusk,
the melancholy of the boy who soon must return to school –
the melancholy of the summer’s end.
I wish that I could be again
eleven years old in the backyard
watching the night come early
and feeling the change in the leaves
the crickets can’t sing away.
I wish I had to go back to school –
so I could be eleven years old again and dread it.
Why must I like the crickets grow old?
Why must I like the summer end?
