Back from the Openned reading
Had a great time at the Openned reading. Think I made more friends than enemies. The foundry was packed. All chairs taken. Standing room in the back three deep. Had no idea this many people cared about poetry. Read from my Arthur sequence. Saw a video camera. Must be video. If it gets posted, I will post it here. *update: no video*
Got the 11:30p train back to Norwich. At some point I fell asleep. Woke up and the train was empty. Strange to be in an empty train late at night. Was happy when I got out. Taxi home. Asleep at 2:30a.
Back in my hammock today. Writing. Listing to archived Giants spring training games. Need the sound of baseball these days.
Changed the submission guidelines for past simple seven. Will only take poems first published on a personal blog. Would like to do something about ownership in poetry. The unquestioning. Why no previously published poems? Curious how this will play.
