The Engineer

The Life and Times of Donald F. Simmons

Stopped by the Art Bar for a bit last night (mostly to say hi to Sandra). It was poetry and the Blues night, so people were reading their favorite Blues lyrics and depressing poems. Sandra read one of her (self declared) worst poems she ever wrote (years and years ago) called Last Tango in Toronto, written in the aftermath of a bad breakup.

But the highlight of the night was a women who read Poe's The Raven as a Blues song with guitar accompaniment. It was completely fucking awesome. I didn't stay for the open mic as I didn't want my memory of that performance sullied in any way.
