New comment on your post “Not Poetzilla, Poetilla”

Passenger’s Report: The inaugural sailing of Poetilla went down last night like a fine wine; albeit the vessel itself remained upright—not faulting once—thanks to the steady hand of Captain Scot Brannan, Poetilla’s chief instigator; a tip of the hat, indeed! As it was 9 poets set sail into the not-quite setting sun on a warm July evening aboard the brand spanking new and some thought the appropriately named electric-powered boat, Resistance Is Futile; I kid you not. We found a quiet corner of the lake on the leeward side Gas Works Park where we floated aimlessly out the way of barges and other boat traffic, on the far periphery of the Duck Dodge sailboat race, the all silver and glistening buildings of downtown looming to the south. And yes, we were briefly accosted by a raft of ducks, whether they were after bread and wine or poetry—some would say it’s all the same—it was hard to tell; they left with both. In any case, original poetry was shared and commented thereon; and wine and beer and bread (what the ducks did not get) were consumed, and I believe all were somehow renewed. And maybe we will see you next week.
From Scot Brannon:
Thanks to all who took part in Poetilla #1, the Seattle Writers Floating Round Table. We spent a couple of hours drifting on Lake Union eating hummus, drinking wine, and critiquing poetry. You can see a batch of pictures on the poetilla/poezilla website.
For those who didn’t make it, hope to see you in the future. If you don’t know what I’m talking about but are intrigued, go to poezilla.com. If you want to be removed from this email list, just drop me a note. If you know someone who should be added to this email list, drop me a note.
Poetilla #2 will launch from the Electric Boat Company dock Tuesday, July 17, at 6:16pm. For details, see the website.
Best to all,
