We gathered at the living room of the Pride Center of the Capital Region to chat, waiting for the (proverbial) tour bus to arrive before listening to the night's featured poet & the poets of the open mic.
This being the anniversary it is, I read 2 poems for the day, "Another Tuesday" (on September 11, 1973 & 2001) & my impressionistic notes from that day in NYC, "2." Carolee Sherwood was back out on the poetry scene & read 2 new poems, "The Falsification Principle" full of images of wasps, apples, deers & thighs, & a carpe diem poem for a poet with cancer, "Anna Will Lose Her Hair."
Each month on the 2nd Wednesday, our host Don Levy gathers us together "Live from the Living Room" of the Pride Center on Hudson Ave., in Albany, NY -- 7:30PM with a featured poet, followed by an open mic. Relaxed & always straight-friendly.
