Nightclub, by Billy Collins. #nationalpoetrymonth

Thursday night was the annual poetry slam at the library where I work. For filler, I read a few favorite poems to the audience. And before I read them I practiced reading them into my iPhone. And because I also need filler on my blog, I am posting one of them here today: Nightclub, by Billy Collins.

This is such a beautiful poem. I love the imagery. I feel like I am right there in the nightclub by the time I have finished reading the poem. You can find the full text of it here.
