Poetry Under the Full Moon Last Night

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 10:06 am

The reading last night was wonderful. There’s a certain radiance to each of these fine poets that stood out. Each distinguishable from the last, but possessing the same heightened sense of beauty. The drive home, despite a wrong turn and an extra half-hour of finding my way back (I forgot that the 10-E doesn’t merge with the 60-E, but merely passes through it), was even more remarkable. The moon haunting the sky above all the dark roads and the cars rushing along like heavy salmon bound for someplace like home.
