I ventured to the open mic poetry event over in Penetang tonight. thirteen souls showed up, and I read a few poems: “smoothing it down”. “Shiloh National Cemetery”, “For Shirley” and “Carried” and “temporarily paradised”, and “Something I Heard in Your Voice”. The room was warm, as was the group. Lots of interesting readers and we did a couple of group poetry exercises. A fun literary evening.
