Poeming at New Riff

(This is the Dylan film. There's no smoking, only a cup of coffee, and no crowd, just Joan Baez singing. So much for my powers of memory.)

Here are New Riff's fermentation vats. You can actually see big bubbles continually rising to the surface. As I mentioned in the typecast, none of their whiskey is for sale yet, as the business is pretty new and the process takes years. This is all starting to sound like a metaphor for the process of becoming a decent street poet!

PS: If you are toying with the idea of doing something like this, you can't find better inspiration than Typewriter Rodeo, from the poetic team by the same name from Austin, Texas. I highly recommend this book.


  1. Typewriters, poems, jazz, and the hint of good bourbon on the way? What a blast!

  2. Congratulations!!!! My respect and admiration for your poetry evening- beautiful poems typed beautifully!

  3. Wow, you're pretty good at being a street poet. (:
    I'll have to get me a copy of that Typewriter Rodeo book, looks pretty neat!

  4. That Triumph is seriously pretty - like a husky dog with different eye colour :)

  5. Congratulations on making the leap, and welcome to the awesome world of street poetry. I hope you keep at it, you have a unique voice and good skill!
