Last night was a great night for poetry. Everyone picked out excellent poems by Steve Smith, and he really seemed to enjoy being there and hearing his stuff read. The weirdest point in the evening came when this gentleman gave a mini-lecture on Heisenberg and Pauli and a sort of mystic hypothesis of discovering subatomic particles to elevate sapiency. [or something like that, the guy is either a little batty or way to smart for his own good. It was also after 1 in the morning, so I was starting to think at caticorners.] All the photos in the set may be found here.
