Poetry reading are like any kind of consumption. (Well, except this kind. But the others, yes. I digress.) Given the choice of A and B, I take both.

Christian McPherson
There was also a Dusty Owl, Christian McPherson reading from Cube People (Nightwood Editions, 2010) and The Sun has Forgotten Where I Live (2011).

There was an open mic (which I didn’t photograph) but I did test drive those two versions of the poem in the recent post and took polls. Which was first and which a later draft? Which version do you prefer. The majority of the room said both, then in a second survey of having to choose, most said version 2 below. (Audiences are handy.)
