Bridge Street Books, Mar 5

Bridge Street Books
a beautiful book store
across the bridge

Once a month I go to the readings there
(sometimes less)

to see the poets read their stuff
(sometimes more)

Ben and Tim came in from out of town
they are poets from north of here
both from far north of here
(one far further north than the other)

When they came to read their poems
they came with cameras:

one large and clunky
(took obscenely-coordinated snapshots)

one small in a pocket
(saved it's findings in a binary batch)

Tim and Ben used science-magic

to type poems into our ears
they used voices

We took their books away
because it's quainter to remember
(using older technology)
