Jack Being Nimble

Five years ago Thursday I was watching Jack Evans, “the Godfather of Phoenix poetry” according to Phoenix New Times, co-host and perform in the Caffeine Corridor series, and I was fortunate enough to have pencil and scrap paper on hand and a ringside seat, so I did a sketch. That that was five years ago attests to the longevity of Caffeine Corridor, and of Jack.

Today I was delighted to see that Jack had made that long-ago sketch his Facebook avatar, probably in acknowledgment of the five-year anniversary of my sketch. Jack, you REALLY MADE MY DAY, doing this! Thanks so much!

  1. As you know, it was Caffeine Corridor’s 6th Anniversary last Friday, and there was a reporter from the “Downtown Devil” on site. No article, so far, although a search of that online publication yields a healthy interest in the local poetry scene with 10 articles containing the word “poetry” in the headline since April 7th. BTW, Jack usually wears a “cross” earring, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him wear a circle, post or gauge. Nice drawing, Gair.

    • He was wearing a stud that night, dear Vic. Thanks for the welcome words. Hey–I’m in town right now! šŸ™‚
