Rules Made & Broken
A Reading On the Theme
Michael Gushue - Kim Roberts
Sue Scheid - Dan Vera

The Red Reading
We asked our audience at the January Reading for a theme for this reading.
Frederick Nunley, a BAWA* Visual artist suggested a reading around a color.
Red seemed to be the consensus.
What arose astounded us. And no, it wasn't Valentine's Day related.

Lions & Lambs
Little lamb who made thee? & "The Lion for Real"
were just some of the interpretations
of this theme of supposed opposites.

Wednesday, October 8th

Poems about getting even, payback, curse poems, and retribution.
This might sound a bit dark, but there's actually a pretty rich history of poets
"getting even," so to speak, through humorous "get the last word" poems.

You seriously don't want to miss this one.
You've been warned.
