A Litter of Poetry 

A great vacuum of lost thoughts, Found Magazine, returns to Richmond care of Chop Suey Books for a night of reading everything from odd shopping lists to the scribbled romantic musings of children. Found founder Davy Rothbart (right) brings a bit of drama to the reading of these misplaced moments, and his brother, Peter, sets some to music. Add to that the social-project-turned-book "PostSecret" by Frank Warren, who distributed postcards to friends and strangers and asked for anonymous responses. What came back in a massive flood of small paper rectangles reads like a gasp for breath, desperate and immediate.

The Firehouse Theatre Project puts on two shows Wednesday, May 24, at 7 and 9 p.m. Tickets are $3. 497-4705. S
