What the Heck, It’s Halloween! (Upstart Poets Photo)

So, to close out the month of October, a photo taken at Upstart Poets last Thursday (see October 26) of some of us who were dressed for the occasion.   One notices first that the “People’s Bar,” the venue for our pre-Halloween reading, is not exactly brightly lit, but kudos to photographer and Upstart Poets host Joel Barker for getting anything at all!

I’m the one in the bowler holding a spade in guise of a gravedigger (I also read Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Conqueror Worm” at the soiree following the featured poets as a piece appropriate to the mood).  To my right is Antonia Matthews while, at the ends, are the night’s featured readers Frida Westford (next to Tonia) and Jonathan Holland.


  1. I love the photo, though it’s a bit dark on my screen. You make a very good EAP’s gravedigger sort. Reminiscent of the times, that is.
    Wish I could have attended!

  2. Hi Marge! Yes, that’s the “What the Heck” part of the headline — I’m afraid it’s a bit dark on everyone’s computer screen. But it’s the only picture I had and, what the heck, it’s Halloween!
