Anyway, I started noticing more homeless poets and started collecing their poetry and promising to "put you online if I get a chance". So, voila!, I got a chance to register a domain name and picked iPoet.com (the "i" is for "i"tinerant). Looking through the iPoet archive, I see that Ricky Teague and Richard Spadaro are the only two homeless poets whom I met "on the street" somewhere. Then there was Jimbow Bailey and Katrina Trea whom I met on the Albany Bulb where they were camped. I'm trying to remember, meeting them must have been the trigger to starting this site. The poetry from Ricky Teague I had collected a year or two earlier and had it in my desk. Yeah. Oh, and I wanted to mention that I stumbled upon the Nuyorican Poets Cafe website and I wished I were in NYC to go visit there. First time for that. Wishing I were in New York, that is. An Ides of March thing?
