Endurance as theme produced a fine original poem from Angus and sonnet from Oliver, as well as a reading of Rilke by Kelly and of Pushkin in Russian by Bernd. There was prose from The Grapes of Wrath and a song from Danny. We had two duos of poems written on the spot, one from Josie and Alex, the other from Ilyas and Hunter. Barney read a piece from his new book, just published by the club; Talitha recited a song lyric by Nick Cave. The rest was original, from Toby and Zoë and Rosalind and Eva, protesting that a bereaved mother is not dead as a woman. Newcomers keep coming and Poetry Nights are still full of WHIMSY & INTELLIGENCE. So let that duo be theme for the new week.
