The indefatigable (as someone called him) David Kirschenbaum has just polished off the 8th annual Boog City festival of poetry & performance. Not sure how many people were involved, but it was a lot. I always wish I made it to more of the events—such a friendly atmosphere, people digging each other's work, enjoying an art conversation that often gets lost in group readings. I admire that he brings in poets from farflung locations & practices. And clearly he does it for the love of the work: I don't think he gets glory, just the satisfaction of putting together a terrific event.

All that from a Mets fan!
