Here is Once Upon a Time on the campus of Bowdoin College in Maine where James Koller invited poet friends like Ted Enslin, Gary Lawless, Bern Porter, myself and others to wear sandwich board signs with our poems nicely hand-printed and mix in the crowd at a Maine Arts Festival busy with boat builders, weavers and knitters, musicians, jugglers, farmers and their animals, and we poets wandering around with our sandwich poems, and in our hands we carried copies of the poems printed on postcards. If you liked the poem, we'd hand you a postcard of the same poem to keep.

Ain't life grand?
