When I first met the Mobtown poets (Justin Sirois, Lauren Bender, Aaron Cohick, Kevin Thurston, and a whole bunch of MICA students), I became a part of a truly fresh scene of poetry that was vastly different than my days at The New School in NYC. In the early oughts, when the Broom Factory was thriving, I was invited by Bonnie Jones to participate in the CHEAP! POETRY! event, where each artist created 10 unique objects, which were put into plastic sleeves and bound with red Chistmassy paper and sold for $3.oo each. I have about 16 of these gems, but this is just a sampling.
