This was a marvelous reading. Alenier read poems from Stone and Szymborska.
It was wonderful how she was able to do thematic poem cycles featuring her two
influence poets and her own work.
Just stellar work and an amazing night for all who attended.

The No Show Poems
Our invited poet -- Andrea Wyatt -- didn't show up for the reading. We don't know
what happened as we haven't heard from her.

So, we were forced to wing it. (How could we have ever imagined this would come to pass?)

Not wanting to send the faithful back into the cold without hearing some poetry we read a few poems
we happened to have in folders and in personal digital assistants (they're handy for this sort of thing -- who knew?)
