Clear the Floor: The Poets are Coming

mike.jpgSorry it’s been a couple of days. I just haven’t had any quality time in front of the machine. I wish I could say my absence was because I was out flying summersaults in the warm, sunny air that rained upon us this weekend. But if I said that it wouldn’t be accurate.

What is true — and as tasty as a yummy bag of popcorn from the wagon in Bridge Square — is the fact that River City Books and The Contented Cow are, once again, teaming up on another wildly popular open-mike poetry night. The frivolity and phraseology begins at 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 19, at The Cow.

Here’s how it works. 

Either bring your own poem(s) or steal a few from one or more of your favorite writers. Though you really don’t have to play by those rules either, as if you don’t have a poem on you, undoubtedly someone will bring an anthology or two to share.

You can read with dramatic authority or with a straight face — it’s up to you. Heck, there’s no pressure. You can even just come to listen. 

The idea is provide a casual setting for those who want to enjoy a little poetry with their beverage. The public is welcome to participate in this free event. 

The Contented Cow is located at 302B Division Street, just a few doors away from River City.
