Open Mike Nite

Blues riffs peel

And moans

Or better tolls

And wails

From the big screen

In the dim lite

Of the place

Three doors down

From my first job

Oh man! It's a long way off

In both directions

But fitting

I s'pose

Since I'm here

To hear

What will be

Might be

Could be

This gave me a feel....of aniticipation, nervousness, and yet the compelling desire to be where poetry will be spoken aloud. As if you were nervous to speak your own, and so in awe...of the words that will be heard....and spoken.
