All Interested Persons Welcome. Please bring ideas and comments.

Now, mind you, the last time I passed along a note like this, the slam turned out to be me and Jessica talking at Zeno's, with Dora breezing through to warn us that the gig was off. I have no control over whether anybody else will be there. I'll go, because there are worse ways to pass a Sunday evening than sitting around Zeno's. I promise to bring some (bad) poetry this time, although it won't be particularly new. I started something the other week, but it turned out lame and I haven't finished it. Maybe I'll look at it again, but I couldn't get the language up to the standard of the idea.

Maybe I'll post some old poetry. I think I have a backlog of old stuff sitting around.
