Poet Robert Gibbons at Cornelia St. This Friday

Celebrate the end of staycation time this weekend, starting Friday at 6 pm at Cornelia Street, where the Son of a Pony reading series kicks off the pre-fall with the jamming sounds of poet Robert Gibbons. You can get a taste of his work on youtube with his great work, "This Scroll is on a Roll" but live is where he really kicks into high gear, unleashing a fleshed-out torrent of imagery with a voice that's truly all his own. His poetry has appeared in Riverdale Press, Palm Beach Post, Nomad Choir, Side of Paradise and Rogue Scholar. and many, many on-line publications.
