Dan Wilcox took another virtual trip to Bennington for Charlie Rossiter‘s 2nd Tuesday Open Mic and was treated to some great poetry.

A short Zoom ride across State lines for poetry, spoken word, music, whatever, without getting dressed or going out. Our host Charlie Rossiter has been getting a good crowd here of late on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.

I was up first for the open mic, we did 2 rounds, 1 piece (mostly) each round & I began with “Birthday Poem 2021” — In the 2nd round another birthday poem of sorts, a piece performed in the 3 Guys from Albany repertoire, “To My Penis, On our 45th Birthday,” just to give you some idea how old this poem is.

The open mic had readings from poets and writers including Jim MadiganTim VerhaegenBarbara SarvisTom Nicotera, Katherine Zaleski, and Kenn Ash.
