It’s been a long time since I’ve spent much time in the public sphere of the local poetry scene. Gosh, it wasn’t that long ago that I was hanging out on Wednesday nights at Linnaea’s, listening to the classical guitarists, the poets, the singer-songwriters, and the occasional senior-citizen white rapper.
Actually, that was probably four or five years ago. You know, that seems like a real long time ago, now that I put it that way. But I still write. Occasionally.
Anyhow, the next couple of weekends is the 24th Annual Poetry Festival here. I’m going to try to go to every event I can. Let me know if you’re interested in joining me.
