Guys hanging out doing Jeopardy (getting most wrong), this was the open mic that almost didn't happen but did. Marcus showed up early (i.e., on time) then left when we shrugged when he asked, "Is it happening?" But he had more important things to do, but then Screamer arrived & she didn't & she was only half a block away. That's when we knew we could (maybe) do it.
As Keith was setting up the mic in strolled 2 more poets so there we were, a real open mic, not just the guys drinking beers at the bar (is that so bad?).
So we just hang out & sometimes a poetry reading breaks out, like a hockey game. It's on the first Tuesday of any month at Valentines on New Scotland Ave. in Albany, NY, say, approximately, perhaps 8:00 PM. Check out Albanypoets.com.
