~A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language~ W.H. Auden

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. Glad you remembered.
JOE: How could I forget that you are the muse of epic poetry and that this is National Poetry Month?
CALLIOPE: Bravo. What are you doing to celebrate my month?
JOE: I have never been much of a poet, but I did organize an open reading at GO ART! this Friday in honor of you and your sister muses. Norm Davis, editor of Hazmat Review and a poet, will host the event.
CALLIOPE: Tell me more.
JOE: Area poets are invited share their work with others seeking poetic inspiration.
CALLIOPE: Tell me about Auden's quote.
JOE: I chose it because I don't feel I have the patience to concentrate fully on poetry, I do appreciate the care poets take with their words. That much has been an inspiration to me.
CALLIOPE: Glad we could brighten your life a little.
JOE: Thank you. Talk with you later.
