Reply to "My own private East Village Part 2"

Poetry reading at ABC NO RIO 1989
Early February. 12 degrees outside
A bulldozer working next door
‘accidentally’ knocks half the
East wall off. There is no heat to
begin with.. Among the
five people there I remember
the monumental J.D. Rage and
Eduardo Arrocha the last
tattooed man at the Coney
Island Freak Show before
it closed. Snow was falling
in the room. I remember
J.D. read this poem where
she said something bad about
God and right then there was
a big roll of thunder outside that
forced us to laugh just
for the warmth.
