2. A good thought, Peggy...

... but if the poem has already spoken for the person intended, is that enough?

While I've gotten tolerably good reactions from people who have read my poetry, doing open mic has never appealed to me. Not from fear of public speaking, I have no problem there, but from lack of conviction that anything I'd have to say is of sufficient interest (to say nothing of beauty) to warrant demanding an audience's time.
