who we are
We are a group of poets interested in creating community
by connecting audiences to poetry in meaningful and playful ways
that surprise, move, and delight
(and that don't make anyone feel stupid or bored to tears)
what we do
We start with one of our poets' randomly selected poems
and we improvise the reading, poem by poem, through audience suggestion,
following different threads, juxtapositions & themes, finding new connections,
until we come to an ending.
We don't know where we are headed and neither do you.
At the end of the reading we make a poem (called a cento) out of the connecting lines of the poems read and that's the poem the audience has created!
