McGrath Reading

Was good. Not great. His work was wonderful, especially the dialogue poem and the Chuck E Cheese poem, "Benediction". But half the poetry students in school had Spring Comes to Chicago for a textbook, and he didn't read anything out of it. Oh well. Good review of the reading from Tiffany Midge here.

Sometimes think, I miss Seattle. There were readings every night, and good poets everywhere. But then I realize I went to one reading a month in Seattle, and two a month over here. An old advisor and I were talking about this the other day. He felt the same way about his old home of Chicago. Then we realized that since there are fewer readings here, attending every one is easier and more important. We both go to every reading because there ain't many, and usually its a little fuzzy how long until the next one.
