WORDS FROM A READING—In a unique display of creativity,
poet Tom Daley captured words from poems read by Jamaica Pond
Poets Jennifer Markell and Sandee Storey at Poets’ Theatre in the
Café at the Center for Arts at the Armory Jan. 16. Richard
Cambridge is the curator of the cozy venue in Somerville, and Tom
worked unobtrusively on a café table while the poets read. Black
words are mostly Jennifer’s. Red ones are mostly Sandee’s.
