“Every once in a great while, a poetry reading can freeze an audience in their seats. This happened to me on a sweltering Fort Worth evening… One thing was certain: when poet Logen Cure had finished with the audience, you could’ve heard a pin drop… Afterward, the friend who’d accompanied me leaned over and said, ‘You know how I said I didn’t like poetry? I think I was wrong.’”
—Camille Griep, author of New Charity Blues
