Christopher Buckley at Artists’ Union Gallery

Christopher Buckley gave an excellent reading tonight at the Artists' Union Gallery, followed by a first-string lineup of local poets at the open mic. I kept getting the sense that we poets are part of the same baseball team, stepping up to bat at the podium. Tonight we cleared the bench in Chris' honor, celebrating news of his latest publication and huddling around the glow of words to keep warm.
