Wave Poetry Bus - The Omaha Stop Sept. 12

I went to the Wave Poetry Bus stop in Omaha yesterday. Little did I know 60 or so kids from a local elementary school were going to be showing up as well.

It made for a very different sort of reading. Quite good. It was wonderful to see the poets interact with the kids. They did a great job. And the kids were as attentive as I've ever seen elementary school kids.

The reading began with what seemed the customary shot of the crowd . . .

I think I have a nightmare where I'm doing a reading and 60 little kids show up...

Just kidding. Thanks for the reportage!
