Hoboken! Baseball!

Isn't this a great poster? Dunno why it's so big, though.
How fun to do a reading at the Hoboken Historical Museum, organized by the Museum's poet-in-residence Danny Shot, with Quincy Troupe, Mikhail Horowitz, the official poet of the Mets Frank Messina, & local historian Nick Acocella, who sweetly called every Hoboken native ballplayer his favorite. (It would be nice to be able to live where you are from & also have New York City right there. I had to choose between South Dakota & the big city.) Also a short play by Ellen Margolis with a Little League/world peace theme. Ed Charles was on the DL unfortunately.

I took the ferry cross the Hudson. You catch it at 39th Street & 12th Avenue, & it takes about 10 minutes. $8.25 for seniors. So fast I got queasy & thought we were going to turn over. I couldn't think of the word "slip" ("which ... gate?" I asked) & as I so often do, wondered why it's so hard to remember I live in a seaport.

    Danny Just a guy who lived in the East Village in the 70s early 80s and on Park Avenue in Hoboken briefly in the late 80s. Reportedly I died in Latin America in the 90s and removed from Poets and writers seems to me wrong. A nobody from nowhere.Just found Elinor's blog your name and Hoboken and just felt compelled to comment. worldcat has 8 collections a couple journals and archive mentioned.

    Sorry I carried this longer than I should have. I was Monsieur Tree in a consumptive production back in 78. My research assistant found the video online much to his amusement. I found the blog on my own. Bye It's been strange
