Strange and wonderful.

Boston's Steve Subrizi is one of the most deliriously offbeat poet/singer-songwriter in the area, and in his hands, the mundane becomes strange and wonderful. In the poem "Radiatore,'' for example, he talks about his love for the type of pasta, and how he pretends he's eating radiators while devouring it.

And then there's the song "Working Till the End of Time,'' which is about exactly what it says on the tin ... an ode to a seemingly endless series of shifts at low-paying jobs. On "Your Boyfriend that Lives in Canada,'' he calls out a potential romantic interest on not seeing what's right in front of her. All of his poems and songs make strange turns, but they're always filled with surprises. Steve Subrizi performs for the Dirty Gerund Poetry Series at 9 p.m. Sept. 2 at Ralph's Chadwick Square Diner, 148 Grove St., Worcester. (Victor D. Infante)
