who are these folks to pay money to listen to a poet read —
some are neighbors congregating
tiny paper cups of p e r f e c t coffee or spiked mulled cider in hands crafting applause
they Sunday in a bungalow
front doors open
on a To Kill A Mockingbird porch
smooth pound of butter sized North Carolina stone props one French door
This is the Deep South. Shouldn’t they pile into hard wood church pews and pray not just for forgiveness but beg not to be shot?
tonight they sit in mismatched seats
lean on wooden railings
cluster in doorways
melt into American architecture
fill space between indoor and out
when the author turns a page
they shift glance at rows of white
paper bags on sidewalks
2017 campfire of LED light luminaries

I’m sipping tea and watching Truman Bonnie Capote look out the in the kitchen window — we are surveying what’s left to prep before company arrives this afternoon. This organic apple juice from Whole Foods is gonna “fry up” great in our spiked mulled cider...

I’ve watched my neighbors clean and decorate for several weeks to get ready. This afternoon on the 400 block of Dalzell it’s all about YOU! You’ll have the opportunity to catch six 15 minute readings by three authors. Stay for all six. Catch two or three. Or just drop by eat some food, drink a handcrafted beverage, buy a book or two. Your options are limitless as you stroll from house to house. Since the weather will be great and you’ll be strolling —wear your art clothes! You know the ones everyone at work asks you about when you dare “dress outside of the box.” You will be part of today’s show! Shoot all the selfies!

The really great reason to come out — it’s about community. Musicians want us to pay cover charges, buy a drink, listen to them, tip them and buy a CD. Visual artists want us to attend openings and purchase their art. Theatre folks say “buy tickets to my show!” The list goes on. But, of course, this is what you do if you want thriving local culture to continue to be made fresh daily! You invest!

Here’s why I think you should buy a ticket and attend this afternoon’s #GETLITTonDALZELL. Community. Investing in creative professionals in our area. The money today goes to the artists! Artists don’t always have to support nonprofits with their creative work. Creative professionals are allowed to make money!

Most artists consider themselves storytellers. We have tons of events in SB Land where musicians, singers, painters, storytellers, dancers...etc can perform for an audience. We don’t have that many places for writers. Those folks who spend hours In solitude crafting words to shake pages into
finished pieces.

This afternoon. 4 PM. Local authors with great books. Careers on the grow. Your opportunity to have fun while investing in creative professionals. And be a part of today’s show! Excellent selfie opportunities will abound!
