Venice Cafe (1941-2014)

one of the popular watering holes in Kent is this place:




today those glass blocks were removed.  why? I guess some call it progress.

the final poem in the Kent section of my forthcoming collection Ohio Trilogy is called "Thru Glass Blocks in Venice Cafe."  I was planning on being photographd in front of that fabled curve on my next Kent visit.

technically this is not a death. the Venice will remain open.  but the next generation of students will have no idea of how it lookd all those years.
