Poems While You Wait helped celebrate The Harold Washington Library's Poetry Fest. There were 8 poets writing both upstairs and downstairs. The poems were free, to celebrate National Poetry Month.
I almost collapsed of hunger halfway through the performance but found some beef jerky across the street.
That morning I listened to the new Twin Shadow album "Caer" and I think it rang into some of the work.
Something that sticks out was the woman ordering the poem "homeless and hungry" and never returning to claim it.
Eat your beef jerky when you have it.
