Postcard from Dodge
That's poet Jennifer Jean in front of NJPAC.
So I'm sitting in the hotel lobby drinking tea trying to process Dodge. I'm having a hard time deciding which picture to upload, what story to tell you and what to keep for myself, etc. Dodge is overwhelming.
The weather has cooperated nicely. Sunny and 70s. Hard to believe it's October. In looking for a photo to upload, I came across photos from last year's Mass Poetry Festival. We were bundled up in coats.
Yesterday was full of concurrent sessions from topics such as "American Poetries," "Tell All the Truth but Tell It Slant," and "Poetry as Prayer/Poetry as Curse." And last night's Main Stage Readings were phenomenal. I was especially proud and happy to see Oliver de la Paz read four poems beautifully, despite a bout of laryngitis.
Current read: Bob Hicok's Words for Empty and Words for Full. Current song on iPhone: Usher's "DJ's Got Me Falling in Love Again"
More to come from Dodge.
