Notes from my poetry reading

In list form, made in no particular order:

1. I'm glad I got there on the early side, since it ended up being SRO.

2. Assam tea - yum!

3. Two teen boys were intently playing computer games on their laptops when I arrived. They were still playing when I left. In between, they almost never paused or looked up. Until someone read a poem about breasts. Turns out that might be the real Final Fantasy.

4. I really liked the second poem I read. It is not the one that made it in the journal. Funny how that goes.

5. I got to hear some pretty terrific poems tonight. That happens every time I attend a reading. This country is thick with talented writers, whether they're widely published or not.

So, a lesson to be learned --- mention boobs to attract more teen boys to literature. :D As much as I hate to admit it, I'm pretty sure it would work on my son. He's at *that* age. (Nooo! screams the mom)

The word "breasts" obviously registered, but it was "boobies" that got their full attention.

SRO - I trust there was lots of applause.

It was Don Kloss's praise poem to breasts that got the gamers' attention. It was a helluva poem.
