Reading at Curley’s Diner, Stamford CT

I’ll be reading from Desert Sunflowers at Stamford’s  Curley’s Diner on May 5th, as part of the Poem Alley reading and discussion series organized by the poet, teacher and local poetry hero Ralph Nazareth.

The poetry crowd at Curley’s, mostly poets themselves, is always welcoming and enthusiastic and I’m looking forward to reading for them. Last time I was there, in the audience, I heard the folk singer Andrew Calhoun. I think we can all relate to his song ‘You Never Can Have Enough Pens’.

There’s things you’d hate to lose more than pens
Things you’d hate to lose more than pens
Your life, your family, a contact lens
But you never can have enough pens
And you might drive a Mercedes Benz
Have a view of the Boston Fens
Have a fabulous figure, like Sophia Loren’s
But you never can have enough pens

– Andrew Calhoun.     http://www.waterbug.com/calhoun/lyrics/pens.html
