The first thing to know about the San Diego Poetry Guild (if you don't know it already) is that, in fact, it has very little to do with poetry. We've talked about this a lot over the past year-and-a-half or so and have yet been able to escape that strange little nagging (maybe healthy) paradox. We all write or read poetry to some degree (and did so, on and off, that night), so it's funny or potentially unnerving that we can't seem to make our little Guild project more "about" poetry and poetic activity, poetry sharing, poetry building, breaking, bartering, etc. We still call it a "poetry" guild, though, and I think that minor caveat is starting to drive a few people (inside and out) crazy.
