Summer in the City, Albany (NY), that is, at the Social Justice Center on a noisy Central Ave.
A little open mic, after invoking our gone Muse Charles Bukowski, before our featured poet, Rebecca Schumejda.
Back to the open mic after a short break & I read an older poem, the inadvertent memoir “The Cardinal.” Bob Sharkey followed with a Frank O’Hara type “Poem,” an August day in Albany. Jan Farrell’s tender, wistful “Butterflies Dancing in the Dark” is her most recent poem.
Join us each third Thursday at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany, NY, $3.00 donation, a featured poet, bring a poem for the open mic.
