This series had been on the 1st Saturday of each month, now scheduled for the 3rd Saturday, at venues at 314 Wall St., Kingston, NY, now "Outdated - an antique cafe." Tonight's featured poets, hosted by Phillip Levine, were Jacqueline Ahl & a last-minute fill-in, Roberta Gould.
There was also an open mic, with our host, Phillip Levine, leading it off with his poem "Election" from 2004, in which he mentions his new-born daughter. & that daughter, Piper Levine, was here tonight & read some short poems & a short story "The Wingless Dragon."
Tim Dwyer read a cluster of outdoors poems, "Walking by the Farm Field Late Summer" thinking of his father, "Summer Late August," & a prose poem when his father also makes an appearance, "Raking the Leaves." Cheryl A. Rice read a tender poem about Mary Panza's late mother, "Day of the Dead." I followed with "Another Tuesday" (a September 11 poem), & "Different Tastes in Music" from a new series.
Stay tuned as this series has switched to the 3rd Saturday.
