Poetry Reading

LET’S TALK ABOUT POETRY  —  Ron Marken

“I love poetry” is our theme.  “I hate poetry” is also welcome.  Each week, we’ll read three or four short poems by reputable poets.  We will ask ourselves, “How does a poem make itself meaningful? What do you say to a poem on the first date? How do you invite a poem to unfold its story?“ T.S. Eliot called poetry “A superior amusement.” We will give equal voice to both the superiority and the amusement.  Doctors recommend our support group for anyone who was bullied by a gang of poems in high school.  This is not a class, however, or a creative writing circle.  No essays.  No exams.  Free poems provided.  The Poetry Group meets the first, third and fourth Thursday of each month in the Studio.

The last session of the Poetry Reading Group will be Thursday, March 2nd (for a few weeks), as Ron Marken the leader of the Poetry Group will be away.  They will reconvene on Thursday March 30th.
