The ice storm of death was no match for the Clean Part faithful. Despite the time and venue change, the crowd showed. Cindy, Jason and Jen were brilliant, flexible, generous, funny, reassuring, brave, and good-smelling. Most of the day Saturday was about kinship, patronage, and drinking. The readers and the audience for this series constantly renew my faith in poetry, and this is all without losing it in the first place. Thank you.
