All he had to say was “I broke my saw” and I was hooked. John Seawright. Poet. He’s been gone for far too long and it breaks my heart that I never got the chance to meet the man.

Go to ATHICA tonight and hear the following people read his work. Go see his brother Sam’s artwork. Twelve bucks. It starts at 6:30. Go live inside a piece of Southern history for a bit.
