Hey bloggers, and Jeffrey is having another one of those poetry events in that City of New York. I know because that postcard flyer that he gave me says so. An those poetry events that he does are always interesting. And it looks as if some of the previous poetry events may have passed, though there is another one coming up just next week. And so I thought to blah blog this event as it looks on this card because hey, it’s less writing sometimes:
