That Gloucester citizens read their favorite poems, in an event sponsored by the Lyceum Committee with Poet Laureate Rufus Collinson, which included our generally fearless leader and poet, Joey C., reading his poem (written with the help of The Bean and Sloop Maddie Mad), titled “Good Morning Gloucester”? You could never tell by watching the video that he was as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs beforehand; but he did an excellent job, and his poem was so real and so homie that you couldn’t help but love it. There is a line in his poem that I think is pure genius; it says: “… it’s all just a sheer embarrassment of cultural events that bedroom communities can only envy”. So true. Bravo Joey!
