The Metres Reading at the Literary Cafe in Cleveland, 9/11
Thanks to Steve Goldberg, Nick Traenkne rand the rest of the Literary Cafe's rogue poets and barkeeps for keeping me up late with words, and for words. (FYI, the reading below is rated R for language.)
Thanks to co-headliner Amy Bracken Sparks for her poems, and to John Burroughs (aka Jesus Crisis), his wife Geri Lynne, and the percussive John Panza, for helping me with "Cell(ph)one." The Literary Cafe's reading series, the second Tuesday of every month in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland (on 1031 Literary Road) is one of the most vital sites of poetry around town, with an open mic that goes into the wee hours and, apparently, involves various debaucheries that have been documented online.
