Poet Angele Ellis Celebrates the warmth of TNY Presents!

'Tho forty winters have besieged our 'Burgh,
And buried alleys that never will see a plow,
When from our frozen burrows we emerge,
We'll seek distraction--friends, the time is now!
Then being asked, where all the culture lies,
Point thy chilled fingers toward Penn Avenue--
Modern Formations will make several poets rise,
Hosting this year's premiere New Yinzer revue.
So venture forth next Wednesday, pretty please,
Ramirez, Joseph, Ellis, Elias, and Weird Paul
Will pluck your heartstrings, and calm every sneeze
Bringing the warmth of verse and song to all.
I trust to meet you there, dear yinzers new and old,
For art's our best defense against the cold.

-Angele Ellis
