Come join us this coming Monday to write, read, and scream poems at each other. We'll be gathering in the Garden Room at the MAH. $2-7 cover fee at the door.
The night breaks down like this:
4:00 - Writing Workshop
5:30 - Open Mic List Goes Out
6:00 - Poetry Begins!
7:00 - This Week's Featured Poet: JuiceBoxxx
More on this week's feature:
"Juicebox lives in (Boca) La Mesa with his beautiful fiaaaaaaaaanceeeee (sucker!) and his handsome roommate and his cat, Stevie Nicks, who is definitely better than your cat. He works at a very nice restaurant where he peddles reasonably priced, consistently delicious food and beverages to entitled yuppie scumfucks and Yelp terrorists. When he isn’t at work he spends his time writing sympathy notes to all of the rich White men who are suffering so desperately from economic insecurity and just can’t bear the weight of the outrageous civil rights violations and constant systemic oppression heaved on their backs on a daily basis. Poor guys really need an advocate. In his SPARE time he watches InfoWars and trolls the public on Fuckbook, generally being a mindless finger puppet for our petulant man-baby president who never lies and is always right. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhnhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, fuck everything.
For serious though, he’s been writing and cursing in public since the 6th grade. He’s been published in Poets & Artists, Willard & Maple and should probably spend more time sending out work to publications and less time reading comic books and listening to obscure punk records and ruffling the feathers of big book thumpers in his local Alano clubs. His real first name is Jesse. His real middle name is Brant, which means ‘wild goose.’ His real last name is Rosenthal, which is like ‘Smith,’ but for Jews.￼"
Bring a pen, a poem, a friend. All ages, styles, backgrounds, beliefs, and needs are welcomed. Respect is expected.
See you there,
