Third Thursday Poetry Night, January 18
The first of the new year, & we began like we ended last year, with the scheduled featured poet unable to be here. But there are always plenty of poets ready to read in the open mic — 2 poems each! & tonight, a cluster of new voices & some others who haven’t been here in a while. But first, I invoked the Muse, the recently-gone local poet/philosopher/aborist (founder of the Pine Hollow Arboretum in Slingerlands) John Abbuhl, & read his poem “What Brings You There.”
Each third Thursday of the month we are at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany, NY for a poetry open mic, usually with a featured poet, 7:30PM, your donation supports poetry & the work of the Social Justice Center.
