Poets Gary Hicks and Sharon Doubiago
open mic follows

GaryHicksGary Hicks, whose work bristles with an acute challenge to the regressive and repressive facts of our times, is joined by Sharon Doubiago, who for decades has written from a Sharon Doubiagofused personal-political-social standpoint that has earned her untold respect as a poet, short story writer, memoirist and essayist.

Jerry Ferraz, native son and peripatetic troubadour, hosts our twice monthly (1st & 3rd Mondays) poetry series.  An open mic follows the featured readers.

at wally’s (for Luis Rodriguez)
on a
good
saturday night
the notes
and the thunder
of electric
guitar, electric
organ and the
traditional
non-electric
ecstatic sax
drums, and
cymbals fire
and thunder
through the dark
tracer bullets
targetting
the sources
of our
genocide. on
a good
saturday night
god
has wrapped us
in a mantle
of salvation while
we fire
our staccato
total rhythmic
music, a statement
to those who
would destroy existence
that creation makes
no junk
ever.
— Gary Hicks
