Billy Collins

This is Jeff Johnson, Billy Collins and myself Fall 2007 at St. Johns University.

Jeff is now professor of English and Humanities at Central Lakes Community College -

Brainerd, Mn.

He curates a series called Verse Like Water - hosting world class poets in the Midwest.

In this pic, we picked Billy up from MSP for his reading at St John's University.

We had 90 + minutes of windshield time cruising up 94 with Billy stories.

He's a Jazz fan so we waxed from Jacky Terasson to Monk.

Jeff and Billy went on rhetoric tangents I couldn't keep up with.

A highlight of my life. Billy is coming back - Details here I'll bring music to this event Steve Yeager - Vibes Steve Blons - Guitar Karl Van Beckum - Bass
