Caracal Ceol Tacenda presented in Poetry Session. The title of this year’s poetry reading - pronounced /ˈkerəˌkal/ / ky-OHL/ /tə"sɛndə/ - can be interpreted metaphorically as the cloak that individuals wrap themselves in to protect their private rhythm from public revelation. Imagine the thin skin separating sacred from profane, and consider how we hide our true selves from popular scrutiny. People strive to preserve the implicit as they dress the ineffable. By attending this session, participants are essentially unfastening this mantle of invisibility that conceals their uniqueness from the world around them to allow some of their hidden meanings to emerge. This is certainly one of the principal joys of appreciating poetry. Peer reviewed poetry chapbook (annual) sponsored by Association of Consumer Research.
