Sweet piece on the Cocktail Poetry Slam at Peter Hoffman’s Back 40 last weekend, a benefit for the Academy of American Poets. The Poets in question are actually Bernadette Mayer and Philip Good. As well as Dorothy Parker, ee cummings, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Jack Kerouac, and, the only poet who bothered to show up, Christopher Michel. The cocktails were brilliant equivalents!
