The poetry reading went really well last night. The anthology is called Bend, Don't Shatter, and the poems deal with gay, adolescent desire. I was blown away by some of the poems, so much so that I'm planning to buy the book when I actually have a little money to spend. I was pretty impressed by one of the poets, T. Cole Rachel, and will probably pick up one of his earlier books as well.

Lord, I wish I were made of money.

As I mentioned, one of my teammates is featured in this anthology, so I got to hear him read. Very interesting. I really liked the poems and his delivery. More than that, though, was the whole 'seeing someone you think you know in a different light' thing. Pretty cool.
