Poetic lines in the water

Cathy Zimmerman, writer and friend, has alerted me to a brief, atmospheric essay, "Read Another One!" by king crabber and poet Toby Sullivan of Kodiak, Alaska.

Read it and prepare to be transported to night and poetry on Uganik Bay.

Cathy reports that Sullivan was among dozens of poets at the Fisher Poets gathering in Astoria last weekend. The poets all hail from the Pacific commercial fishing community. Their readings of poetry and their singing of original songs made for, in Cathy's words, "an unpredictable, funny, bawdy, profound" celebration.

You'll feel the spirit in Sullivan's essay.
