Poetry in Performance

I met up with the Duck last night, seeing how it is that i can’t get him back out on the basketball court, I thought, perhaps a little poetry in motion might be his style.

And an excellent night indeed…old friends, much laughter, new places, reminiscing…a superb mixture of each, making for a wonderful evening. I’ve never really been to a stand-up poetry performance. The best i’d done previously was watch Mike Myers in So I Married and Axe Murderer, perform his Woman poem to a jazz ensemble. Do you remember that one? Woman, woman, woooooooman! Anyway, the poet in question that we went to see is a cat named John Hegley , he looks like a cross between Elvis Costello and Woody Allen.
