BACK IN THE DAY
This photo of poets was taken at a group reading I organized at Trinity College in Washington DC circa 1970...from the viewer's left that's the teenage Simon Schuchat, the late Steve Shrader sitting, behind him Eric Torgerson, sitting on the ground in front I think that's Dick Patterson, behind him the late Ray DiPalma with beard, next to him Paula Novotak, and me standing with my knee up...not the best shot but still evokes some great memories of poet friends...
To respond to a post, just hit "comments" at the end and feel free to wail. [But no cursing people out or telling lies about them.]
I'll be reading my poetry and responding to interview questions from David Lehman and the audience at The New School Poetry Forum, April 25th, 6:30-8PM, Room 510 (Alvin Johnson/J. M. Kaplan Hall), 66 West 12th Street, NYC, all welcome, and it's free.
