The Shorn Lord reads Himself
Last night, Sue and I scored some comfy chairs at the LBC's Hump Reading. Great Gatsby Books hosted Lord John Buckley, who gave us thirteen minutes of his finest-- mostly new stuff, some classics.
He was tucked snug in the middle of some fine open mic'ers. Spotted in the SRO crowd were local poetry royals, Gerald Locklin and Donna Hilbert. The IE was well repped by K. Andrew Turner (who also read), Lloyd Aquino, Michaelsun Knapp, and of course, Sue and me.
Sue and I somehow missed the after-party at the grill, but the fresh strawberry pie at Hof''s Hut on PCH was calling our names. At least mine. What better way to celebrate JFB, and mourn his impending loss to an MFA program at UMich at the same time?
