Poetry sometimes seems to be surrounded in mystique, local poet David Mutschlecner said; it does not receive much attention from the public and is often viewed as inaccessible.To help bring this art form into the public eye, and to clear up people’s understanding about poetry, a special reading will be held at 7 p.m. March 20 in the upstairs rotunda at Mesa Public Library.The reading is in recognition of National Poetry Month, which is in April. Mutschlecner will participate in the reading along with Brooklyn poet Jennifer Bartlett, and her father, Lee Bartlett of Las Cruces.The audience will be the first to hear Lee’s newest work, which has not even hit the presses yet. His collection of poems will be published later this year.He explained that he will read from his manuscript to gather people’s reaction to the work before submitting it to be published.In addition to his newest work, Lee will also read poems written in the 1970s, 80s and 90s.He was not always a poet. Lee explained growing up in Berkeley, Calif., he fell in love with rock n’ roll and was even in a band.
