Stevie Turner (any pronoun) is The Absinthe Poet, ringmaster of Absinthe Nights spoken word event and radio show and has more than a little in common with la fee verte themselves. Eloquent, elegant and enticing, their poetry offers a glimpse behind a curtain to another world – one more chaotic and exciting than everyday experience, as well as one teetering on the edge of chaos in the best possible way.
A lifelong enemy of the mundane, Stevie’s first collection “Lost Decades” is at turns political and personal, but never, ever mundane and their performances (in their own words) “kick in quick, like cocaine at rush hour” and propel you to somewhere else. Somewhere different. Somewhere exciting and filled with the sort of strangers you REALLY want to get to know.
