Poetry Salon 1

So, last night was the first poetry salon at my house. If you weren't invited, don't worry, odds are you will be soon. I had to start small. The last time I decided to do this 50 people came over. And we didn't talk about poetry one bit.

So here's the few steps to making your own poetry salon.

First: Invite no more than 5 people

Second: Go to the farmer's market

Third: Make enchilades with tomatillo sauce

Fourth: Have a quick drink with a friend

Fifth: Talk poetry with your beauties

Topics covered:
Slam Poetry
Paul Muldoon as the new poetry editor of the New Yorker
Poems in form
John Hollander
Some gossip/NO NAMES HERE
Willie Nelson
Joni Mitchell
Other forms
Endings of Poems
The WORK of poems
New books
