James Tokley: “He Calls it Technology, We Call it Poetry”

James TokleyJames E. Tokley, a Tampa Bay treasure and Poet Laureate for the City of Tampa, combined wisdom, great stage presence, humor and incredibly powerful poetry to cap the event.  James artfully compared  poetry to Charles Armstrong’s technology talk,  perfectly demonstrating the power of diverse ideas.  James’s insightful talk reminded us that “poetry is that one secret that every one of us has”.  James recited his poem “Leviathan” and ended to  a standing ovation with “The Pursuit”.  Thank you, James.
