Marathon Sunday in NYC as those hazy fall colors bring forth the change in season.
Things to Do in the Belly of the Whale
by Dan Albergotti
I came to the Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene on this rainy Wednesday, to meet an old writing group friend/classmate and attend this great reading. Hosted by the editor, with some awesome contributors and a few other authors, their stories were funny, sad, clever and melancholy. Read this book! It’s full of intrigue, love and brutal honesty, much like the city it eulogizes. I’ve really enjoyed reading it, as it suits my mood just fine these days.
Elaine let out a quiet mm
at the end of every poem
as if savoring each word
letting the flavors coat her mind
to watch a person remain so focused
on something i’d created,
and it felt so wonderful
to finally be seen.
