Fall in the DC area is all about poetry . . . poetry matters. In Takoma Park, the season kicks off at the Takoma Park Community Center on September 15, Thursday, at 7:30.
Four poets including myself will read.
In honor of Mary Oliver’s birthday, I’ll recite “Wild Geese.” Having poems in your heart — by heart — is a beautiful thing. Do you know any poems by heart? Which ones???
When I turned 4, I recited “I’m a little teapot (short and stout)” on the stage at the Phenix Methodist Church where my Aunt Marian ran the Sunday school. That started me off on performing at open mics . . . Hope to see you Thursday.
