|Just a short word about the amazingness that was the Hessler Street Poetry Contest!|
The lighting was fairly bad for photography, but people tried anyway. I personally did a little, then gave up, but encouraged others with better cameras to try.
|The lighting was not a deterrent to the poetry shared. Our judges had a difficult time putting together the winners after a good hours worth of poetry. We had poets from all over Ohio and beyond participating and the inspiration ran wild.|||
|The venue: The Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern was gracious to host us and we appreciated the space. Pretty soon the lighting didn't matter and we all just enjoyed the poetry.|
|The judging drew to a close and in my hand were the winning envelopes. Third place: Keely Aaliyah with her poem: I am a Soldier. Second place was Devlinbleu Chambers with his poem: Environmental Super Nova.|||
|At last, after the perfunctory delays to increase the drama, I revealed the 1st place prize...|
Vince Robinson with his poem: Star Struck,AND Christine Howey with her piece: I Was a Male Impersonator for 40 Years.
