Janet Mason reading poetry at PII Gallery

Friday night, I was part of a group poetry reading at PII Gallery in Old City.  The marathon reading was organized by poetry maestro Dave Worrell who brought together 17 poets who read a total of 47 poems.  As the poets moved back and forth from room to room, I mentioned to fellow poet Bill van Buskirk  that this is good for poets — to be together to be moving. Bill replied that he agreed: “if the poets get in a rut, then what is the world coming to?”    Below are some photos of the event and a short poem that I read in honor of the artwork on the walls. 

Mike Cohen reading poetry


(from  a woman alone)

she colors her own fields
wide open with purple
and yellow bowing
to a prism of green
swept away
in a stampede
of poppies
a woman alone is
wild and red.
