Year’s First Last Sunday Poetry Reading

Only a short note this time for another local tradition continuing into the new year, in this case the Bloomington Writers Guild-sponsored Last Sunday Poetry Reading which came about as scheduled at the County Convention Center between 3 and 5 p.m.  The headline poets were Patsy Rahn and Dr. Abegunde, both multiply-published local poets who have also been featured before, and who were followed by nine or ten of us (for this month anyway) “lesser lights” at the open mike session.  Mine were five short vampire poems that were published in two sets in November’s BLOODBOND (cf. November 15), with my noting that, for better or worse, the three in Set 1 tended to address philosophical/theoretical issues (for example, one discussing the use of breath mints to avoid repelling one’s potential victim) while the two in Set 2 were concerned more with vampirism as a practice.

The session was pleasant and the poems received well.  Upcoming events were also announced, including next week’s First Sunday Prose Reading with more or less the same set up and, later that week, February’s edition in the Fountain Square Poetry series.
