Black and Blue Saturday~
St. Louis is hours away from warm and sunny weather, which means I will be in my glory. Yesterday was the St. Louis Writer's Guild Poetry Throwdown. Catherine Rankovic judged the contest. She wore a suit and heels -way overdressed for our blue collar, blue-jeaned crowd of poets and writers, sometimes blue comic and our black belt martial artist. Compared to Ms. R. we looked like we were ready for a hoedown. Wish someone would have told us she was judging US on appearance and not just our writing. But it was fun. Lots of good poetry and wonderful friends. A way to support the guild on a rainy afternoon.
