Laureate Stand-In

03/01/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Poetry

C. Allen Rearick gave me a last minute call last week to stand in for Lakewood Poet Laureate, Jack McGuane. Poor Jack's big beautiful heart was making new noises so he was getting a valve job and maybe a lube, if he remembered to bring the coupon. The buzz is that he is alright and I don't have to have any guilt for swiping his poetry reading gig.

We are scary trio, huh.

I was planning on going to Bela Dubby anyway to hear C. Allen and Toledo poet-pal, John Dorsey (both are booked for the Lit). Thanks to C. Allen for praising my performance, but I'm no Jack McGuane.
