The show is eclectic to include music, poetry, dance, drama and whatever else Bert can add to the mix.  There isn’t a cover charge for this event.

Even in a single blade of grass       In my medicine cabinet                         The crane’s legs

the cool breeze                                         the winter fly                      have gotten shorter

finds a home.                            has died of old age.                            in the spring rain.
