This is from a few years ago (Sept. 2012). I’m reading “Still Life with Parsnips and Snow” at the Newtown Arts Festival. The poem won an honorable mention from the Newtowner Magazine’s International Poetry Contest. Winners were chosen by Dick Allen, who introduced the winning poems. The Arts Festival is an annual event at the Fairfield Hills Campus in Newtown, and a great way to celebrate the arts and visit my hometown.
