Here we are—me, Annabel, Randy (harmonica), Ellen (toy piano)—at the 42nd Annual Poetry Project New Year's Day Benefit Marathon (& I feel like it might have more words in its name). I have never before cut loose singing like I did at that mike. I was channeling my inner Aretha!

We performed in the first hour of 11. I stayed a few more & heard the usual grab bag of funny, profound, dumb, inaudible, brilliant, pointed works. Yay for poetry! Yay for the Poetry Project!
