"Not since the days of the beatniks have poetry readings been so popular. In New York City, the series named by New York magazine as the best is a Simple, no-frills affair, packed with a standing-room-only crowd intent on [hearing] the most famous poets in America mixed with the up-and-comers."
-- Pittsburg Tribune Review

The poetry itself can be a mixed bag. It brings to mind the maxim, "you can't please all of the people all of the time." Personal favorites for me are "Santa Monica" by Charlie Smith, and David Trinidad's "Of Mere Plastic", a funny but insightful take-off of "Of Mere Being" by Wallace Stevens. I suggest you by the book and read these two last. Each poet has a short bio before their poem, listing their publications and history, so its a great lead of to some terrific books. Find a poet you like, and dig into their back-prints. Indeed, people don't read enough poetry these days. And what's a better way to start than with this seemingly "underground" compilation?
