Andrew Periale

Evolving the Conversation

a salon in the exurbs

the featured guest teasing

mysteries out of the cheese plate


we’ve looked up liminality

(at least once) our ideas projected

on the tent of evening


the inspired jibber-jabber

juking the giddy light

of our little white nights


the free flow of booze 

de rigueur, igniting 

the luminaria of our “aha!”s
