Stir pesto and grated cheese into your own bowlful.
One ridiculously thrilling moment was when Mahmound recited two
Tony Hoagland poems right out of his head. Imagine: all those things and numbers and worries and tales- and still having room for a string of someone else's words. And I'd never heard of Mr. Hoagland before and now he's a new favorite poet. We had a sprinkling of ancients, a bit of Yeats, Baudelaire in French, rhyming couplets, and a local original. And then we had the delicious Lemon Ricotta cookies Sue's brought to share. Next scheduled poetry soup is for Feb. 24. 6:00pm.
