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 -
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
