Standing on one leg

JOE: Good afternoon, Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good afternoon, Joe. You were going to tell me about your next project.
JOE: A literary one, but a bit out of my league. It being National Poetry Month, I was asked to develop an appropriate program at GO ART!.
CALLIOPE: What did you come up with?
JOE: I invited a prominent poet of my acquaintance to make an appearance, but alas he was too busy this month.
CALLIOPE: And your plan B?
JOE: I decided on an open poetry reading toward the end of the month hosted by Norm Davis whom I have known for many years.
CALLIOPE: What do you expect to happen?
JOE: I’m not sure. I don’t recall one ever taking place in Batavia before.  It should be an interesting experience.  Talk with you Friday.
