On Saturday, May 28, Fred read an assortment of poems at Beyond Baroque’s Rodeo Reading. A live band played music, improvising with poets who read their poems aloud. All the poems were well received with applause from the audience. Fred’s poems, “The Door” and “11th Round” were received with special applause. The band and Fred’s poetry really worked well together, creating a harmonious panoply of words and sound.
