Four Poets at Visible Voice, March 19, 2008
Last night, despite yet another Cleveland snowstorm, four horsemen of the word apocalypse, Philip Metres, George Bilgere, Roger Craik, and Michael Dumanis read poems at Visible Voice Books in Tremont. Thanks to Virginia Konchan for organizing the event and Dave at Visible Voice for providing the intimate space. And for the crazy people who came out on such a hibernatory evening, to complete the circle of our words. On the way over, while listening to the Grifters and sliding through the abandoned snowy streets of midtown, a parody of Basho came to me:
Even in Cleveland
driving under another snowstorm
I long for Cleveland.
