Bay View was one of the first places we visited for a Lake Effect On-Site. It’s home to poet and contributor Jenny Benjamin, who wrote a poem in honor of the show and the place she calls home. Here she is, from that broadcast, reading “My Neighborhood”:
What borders are here, around this house?
Fernwood School fences
A canopy of ash trees in the rain
Lakeside sunrise, salt mountains, windmill,
Coffee houses, hat shop, soap shop, pet care,
And bars, lots of bars, for sugar maple-ing the night away.
