If you seek approval from a community of people, you limit your growth to its size.

It was worth going to, but this was the magazine launch/poetry reading/open mic in a nutshell. A lot of very nice people. A lot of very confused people too, who talked about publishing ‘chapbooks’ and put heavy emphasis on words like “leonard” and “cohen”. Who talked about how a vibrant arts community needs polemics and twirled backwards, like a dog chasing its own tail, trying to remember what those are.

But I am going back.
