#LiteraryCocktail Poetry

Reed composed this poem in honor of his custom cocktail, What You Drink (based on his recent novel, What You Break)

I've seen the best minds of my generation

Building cocktails on Negro streets,

Sweet vermouth and hop, bebop, scotch.

I grow old, I grow old, I drink Cherry Heering,

Orange juice and wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Add ice, add ice, ignore

My words but take my advice

Strain it. Take an orange peel

And be revealed.

After I drink it, wash me out of

The ball turret with a hose.

Alice Kaltman Chutzpah


Past open mic reader and featured author Alice Kaltman takes a seventh-paragraph stretch. Guests searched for the afikomen and Easter eggs. The eggs were found at the bar and high up on a speaker. The matzah was a framed book cover, nestled among the many others: Chutzpah: A Novel, by Ima Afikomen. Successful searchers won books by our authors.
