Giving a Wednesday shout-out to the Saturday morning group the Bagel Bards. This group of poets and writers has been meeting for many years on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m.–noon to talk about all things poetry. Co-hosted by Doug Holder and Harris Gardner, they are always looking for members. Visit them in Somerville at the Au Bon Pain in Davis Square. The cost to attend? A cup of coffee and ability to schmooze!
My kids have not been overly impressed with Underlife. But I started reading poems about them and now they think it’s cool. In particular, Ella, my four-year old, likes to quote back lines from the poem “Tangerines.”
Also, my mom told me that she was “tickled” by my poem “Afro Puffs.” How cool is that?
“Seems like yesterday you were in my dreams,
Last night I nibbled your feet like tangerines.”
Just got great news about a good friend finding a publisher for his manuscript! Congrats KC!
