A Hell of a Review from Jesus

07/21/08 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Poetry, Literary Cafe

A packed house for the Lit Cafe reading with Dave Smith and Theresa Gottl included Jesus. Now I find poetry to be very uplifting and spiritual at times, but Nick sometimes says things that make some glance to heaven to check for a lightning bolt. However this time Jesus himself shlepped all the way over from Galilee Elyria to check out the scene and boy did he like it.

Yeah, it's my butt!

Of course, I am talking about relatively new myspace friend, John (Jesus Crisis) Burroughs. He did a great review of the night complete with tons of pix. He also read and sang a bit for the open mic and quickly made himself and his wife Geri a member of our Lit family. Check out his take on our hardly-ever-humble-anymore venue.

Jesus CrisisI had a fine time and am kicking myself for not making the pilgrimage sooner. The three Smiths and one T.M. gave me four reasons to go. And I discovered a heaven of a lot more reasons once I got there.

Thank you for the kind words and links to my site!

Oh... and nice butt you have there!

Neve BlackLighting bolts? Jesus Christ? Only Satan can save Nick's soul, I'm afraid. ;-)

This is coming from a woman of smut related tendencies, so I call it as I smell, taste, feel, and oh yeah, visualize it.

ladyWe are one happy family. Trying to figure out the magic at the Lit - it's a synergy of the charm of the hosts and the lubrication of the participants, me thinks.

Dianne BorsenikDefinitely a celestial vibe going on at The Lit! I was transported, exalted, made holy, by the poetry and the poets therein...and can't wait to do it all over again. The boxered buttcheeks are a bonus feature!
