How went the reading Marguerite Rivas sipoet Hi Ron,
The reading went well, thank you. I had a small but appreciative audience and my friend Ed accompanied me on drums on a few pieces. It was a lot of fun. I debuted a piece that I had written that was a blend of folk lore and fact about the infamous Polly Bodine murder case (Staten Island's own Lizzie Borden). Yesterday I visited the graves of the victims of the crime that she was accused of committing. After two, actually three, trials Ms. Bodine was eventually acquitted. Visiting the graves was a moving experience.
