Description

On October 22nd 2014 (10/22/14), Janet Kuypers hosted the poetry/performance open mike at "the Cafe Gallery" in Chicago @ Gallery Cabaret. Open mic poets and performers included Dan Weinberg, Bob Weinberg, Bob Rashkow, Patrick Hurley, Lucia Blinn, Jerry Pendergast, Bob Lawrence, Bill Yarrow, Paul Ryan, Tom Schaffer, Vittorio (Vito) Cari, Dave Gecic and Shamus McGill. At the beginning of the evening, Kuypers read her poem "Junk", that she recently wrote, and because it was science (DNA) themed, she wanted Bob Lawrence to hear it. Since Bob Lawrence showed up late, she read the poem again at a diffrent speed during the evening. Between open mic readers during the evening, Janet Kuypers read from current issue of cc&d magazine (released as an ISBN# amazon.com book titled "Approaching Front") poems "I'm the Example" by David Hernandez, "Life Insurance" by Madison Gardler, "Exastis" by George Gott, and "Serial Harvest" by Jean Wiggins. Dan Weinberg read poetry of his that appeared in this magazine issue, as did Vittorio Carli. Janet Kuypers at another point also read from the current issue of Down in the Dirt magazine (released as an ISBN# amazon.com book titled "a Creative Journey") the poems "Breakfast Companions" by David Hutt, "Dodgeball" by A. Lenkeit, and "Subliminal" by Michael Grodesky. At another point in the evening, Janet Kuypers also read three never before read poems from her book "Twitterati" (twitter-length poems; details about the book can be found through the Scars Publications web site http://scars.tv/partial-nudity/twitterati.htm and ordering the book directly through the printer is on line at https://www.createspace.com/4839894 - though you can order it through amazon in North America as well as from the U.K. or all of Continental Europe), including Like Cheese cake, Opinions, and Goth Girl Photographer.
