Hey Baby

“…under ideal conditions this baby will grow 80 feet tall, photosynthesize, and crush terrorist babies beneath its chubby heel…” –from “Hey Baby” by Tony Brewer. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt Eric T. Sheler)

“Man is certainly stark mad: he cannot make a flea, yet he makes gods by the dozens.”
–Michel de Montaigne

Tony Brewer is chair of the Writers Guild at Bloomington, executive director of the Spoken Word Stage at the 4th Street Arts Festival, and one third of the poetry performance group Reservoir Dogwoods. He’s been up for a Pushcart Prize twice and his latest book is Hot Type Cold Read.

On this edition of The Poets Weave, Tony reads “calling the quartet” and “Hey Baby.”
