Boarding the Ark with Lemon Cake

If Klecko has found one thing in life that has paid dividends, it is to "Put Everything You Love On One Canvas".

This mantra was taught to me by my 1st grade teacher Mrs. McDermitt, and I still live by this sage advice.

Tonight I will be holding a reading for a few friends inside a publishing house with my friend Dara Syrkin.

Our "Event" is titled The Ark Readings and the 2 of us are going to read poems dedicated to animals.

Dara is more of an outdoor animal enthusiest, where I go more for the domesticated route.

After the 2 of us read a few poems each, we'll give tribute to our host Nodin Press, and afterwards the makeshift stage will be opened to our guests to read their own favorite animal poems.

The deal is a 7 p.m. start, so most of our guest will have had dinner, so we've decided that we'll pretty much offer treats.

I'll be bringing a Lemon Cake with an Ark picture on it, and a crate of banana's, Dara will be responsible for healthy cookies in the shape of animals.

Did she mention something about tangerines?

I think the only things I desire that have been left off are Borscht, Scotch and Project Runway, but who knows....maybe that's another party.

Tonights show is invite only, but if any of you cat's want to see Klecko and his friends in action, this coming Sunday, December 2nd, we will be reading at the Sub Text Bookstore (with the writing staff of Lief Magizine) at 3 p.m. (right after the Viking finish off the Packers).

Mike Finley will be hosting this event, so you know it's going to be flat out insane. Fireballs flowing from all directions.

Anyways, life is short, so I am excited to share this evening with my friend Dara, so I got to start packing chairs into the bread truck, but before I do.....

Let me pay homage to my first grade teacher and ask you.....

What do you love?

Make a list....then plop them onto one canvas and you shouldn't be surprised how beautiful your work of art will become.
