Albany Poets Present, at Valentines, 2/6/07

This is a late-start, hanging out, raucous event, with heckling, beer & cigarettes (outside, of course). And fun. And..., well just show up some time.

Tonight more poets than readers, but that happens. We had fun & you missed it. Oh well.

Shaun Baxter was proclaimed the shortest open mic host (NightSky Cafe in Schenectady on the 3rd Wednesday of each month), shared wino advice.

A new poet on the scene -- which makes this such a place to be, they just seem to find it, or are smelling the beer (in this case, white wine) -- Sahli Cavallaro, two intricate poems about women: look for her out & about, likes classical music & poems incorporating that rhythm.

I needed My Scarf tonight for the cold & read it, along with the QE2 photo poem on this Blog, & a work in progress about Hamilton St. (Mary Panza lived there & liked it.)

& Dain acted out, again -- we love it. Thom our host.

You should've been there.
