My first poetry reading in a long time at Churchill’s in Pottstown

I will be getting the poems out and giving a reading.
Here’s an excerpt of a poem I wrote about glass, which I mentioned in my post about Christopher Ries.

As you can see, glass has been on my mind for awhile!

Sea of Glass

an excerpt on Dale Chihuly’s Seaforms:

“They are like chiffon woven with ribbon,
they still look warm, as if the blower’s breath
gave the heat rather than the fire.
Some have lip wraps, an edge of color
named a lip.  These forms are open,
lips are the boundary;
a mouth that can say anything.”

Come out and hear the rest!

Mad Poets Society presents a series of the previous Poet Laureates of Montgomery County, 2nd Saturdays at 7:00, at Churchill’s in Pottstown. I was Poet Laureate in 2000, and I’ll be reading with Sorina Higgins.
