Open-mic Night

Asked to come for poetry readings at The Wok and Roll
I stayed for the night in Woodstock
after we had the obligatory through- borough- stroll
The New-Age activists rage against the establishment still
The last of the night's orators ended the night on and urgent note
He collapsed to the floor, combative and delirious
A diabetic, he was given a drink of orange juice
All was well
Thus ended the night
