Poetry Pilgrimage…From Alley Poet’s Pen

 

Alley Poet's Pen - Sandee GertzNashville, TN – About two years ago, not long after I made the move to Nashville, a poet friend, and fellow alum of the Wilkes University MA/MFA Creative Writing Program, Kait, turned me on to a “poemer” in New York City.  (Or more specifically: Bill Keys’s unique story and Facebook Page “Poems While You Wait.”)

First thing you have to know about Kait: she’s a free spirit and wears broad, impossibly large hats atop her long brown hair.  She writes poems and plays and wears red lipstick, which if it’s not applied already, will be whipped out of her purse and slicked on just before a photo is taken.
