Fort Saint Davids Holiday Weekend Activity Guide: Give Us Fifty One-Word Reasons Why Feldman Was At The Poet’s Corner

Dear Reader: please take a long hard look at the above photograph. It was taken, by someone we can’t remember, sometime around Christmas in 1999, at the Poet’s Corner, which was both a literary club and a bar in an old hotel in New Brunswick, NJ that has long since been demolished. Pictured, from left to right: Joe Vee, Feldman, Fort Saint Davids, Heather Mc$$$, Cherry Hill Jade, and Josh Carr, whom Screamin’ Joe Lisciandro once dubbed “The Hate” but has now turned a corner and renamed him “The Love.”

This is the book from which Carr is reading:

FSD wholeheartedly suggests you take a look at this book, that is if you like poetry.  If not, steer clear.

(That is, we think that’s the book.  He might also have been reading the collected works of Coleridge, another Corner favorite.  Take another look at the photograph.  What do you think?)

Our question to you, the reader, is, what was Feldman doing at the Poet’s Corner? Can you give fifty one-word reasons why? We’ll give you a few.

1. Hate. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because of hate.

2. Spite. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner out of spite.

3. Compassion. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner through compassion.

4. Insanity. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because he was insane.

5. Love. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because he was in love.

6. Endurance. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner to build his endurance.

7. Thirst. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because he needed a drink.

8. Sorcery. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because a Wizard cast a spell and made him.

9. Tenacity. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because he was tenacious.

10. Religion. As in, Feldman was at the Poet’s Corner because God told him to.

So your job, as the reader and as our best friend, is to offer up your own list, as few as one and as many as 50, of reasons why Feldman was indeed at the Poet’s Corner, Christmas 1999. Leave your list in the comments section conveniently found beneath this article. Good luck, and godspeed.
