Veasey Returns Home as Esworthy and O’Leary Rockey Sway the Museum

The Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel from Harrisburg, Pa. came to visit Ryerss Museum. Christine O’Leary Rockey and Marty Esworthy entertained the crowd with a joint reading and Jack Veasey returned home for his first reading in Philadelphia since 1991. The audience listened to a talented open mic group of Christian Thiede, Maria James Thiaw, Bill Fritz and Krystle Griffin.  Photos of the event are available at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/12065560@N04/sets/72157629096910438/

Poetry, The Kiss and The Inane

It was a wonderful evening for poetry in Fox Chase. The poets came to read and put on a great show. As the poetess shared The Kiss with the appreciative crowd,  two fifty somethings in the adjoining tap room decided to engage in Frazier-Ali IV,  as the lovely words echoed in the room, a few thumps and lumps and these two looking very inane  was over, without missing a beat she concluded to the applause of the assembled poets. As the reading concluded, the poets went on their way as the tap room mellowed to the quiet tones of the Quizno D.J.

Open Mic Readers: Krystle Griffin, Manny Cartagena, Bruce Kramer, g emil reutter, and our hostess Diane Sahms-Guarnieri.
