Good Morning Gloucester- The Poem

Last night an interesting swath of diverse Gloucester folk were invited to recite their favorite poem at the Sawyer Free Library.  I happened to be one of those people invited to read.  Instead of reading someone else’s poem I decided it would be a good idea to work on my own after our good FOB Deb Clarke suggested the idea.  With a little help from Snoop Maddie Mad and The Bean we put together a little something.

I’m not sure why I get so goddamn emotional when I speak about G-Town.  Not sure if you can tell from the video but I was pretty much a wreck.  It probably had something to do with not wanting to do a disservice to the city I love or the blog for which I’m obviously insanely passionate about but I sort of get overwhelmed at times when I speak about them.

Anyway I’d like to thank the Sawyer Free Library Lyceum and host Rufus Collinson for inviting me.  I’d like to thank my great poetry contributors Snoop Maddie Mad and The Bean, and I’d like to thank everyone who came out for the event including our very own E.J.

Written and Read For The Sawyer Free Library Lyceum Sponsored Program- Gloucester Reads Poetry

Look for many of the other invited readers’ videos as the week goes on, I know the camera ran out of memory about half way through so I didn’t get to capture everyone unfortunately.
