Poetry Night

Beatnik Cafe presents another night of hearing truth from lesser heard perspectives! This marks our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY at Hey Hey.

7-7:10 pm- Intro
7:10-7:30 pm- Kuahmel Allah Reading

7:50-8:50 pm- Poetry Open Mic (3 minutes per poet)
8:50-9:00 pm- Close

Poetry Open Mic Guidelines: Please come with poems to read at the Open Mic. You could read poems by you or by other people you respect. Although I want to hear you, this is not a space to promote your wine company's social media. I appreciate your other modes of self-expression, but will you at least write a poem about it?

If you don't have any poems you want to read at the Open Mic, please see the below writing prompt.

As August washes past us, we are reborn again to fall into the lap of September's music. Write a poem about a time when you were distracted by the thud of your heart, until a song made you smile.
