Coffy Cafe in July

Thanks to all who came out to Coffy Café in July! We made new friends, had some firsts on the mic, and met more of our extended family. Here are the highlights…

Peter’s bard-like recitations of original poetry made us feel the sudden grasping of the asp and hunger not for all the world to sate; made us ride the brakes and smell the burn beyond the storm’s reach; and our tribe began to chant and cheer for him and his wild space marine.

Jess wondered about the McDonald’s cup on the metro sign and kind of wanted a reason for it being there, but chose nothing instead.

Dan read the poem 5 by Catullus (a Latin poet of the late Roman Republic who wrote in the neoteric style of poetry) in latin and then translated in English: Let us live and love…Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred…Let us shake the abacus, so that no one may know the number…

Luis was just saying his peace—sometimes with his daughter in his arms—inviting us all to follow our hearts, take a look around to find life abounds from the sky to the ground, and feel his verbal telekinesis.

…And there was much more to hear and share. Looking forward to seeing you out in August at Bossa on 8/13 and Coffy Café on 8/22, both 7-9 PM!
