Anybody see Billy?

Just curious- did anyone venture to Loveland to see our EX-poet laureate, Billy Collins? If so, I want a full report on my desk in the morning!

Yes indeed. 'Twas marvelous, every moment of it. I found it highly optimistic that a little town in the middle of Colorado can pack a theater to hear a poet read poems. I mean, anyone can hold a reading in NYC, but the Loveland audience was so smart, so witty, so supportive, I came away feeling rather hopeful about the future of civilization (I suppose that's a lot to hang on poetry as a genre).

I think a poem is germinating on the impression the evening made...stay tuned.
