Open air poetry at Lafayette Greens

Detroit, Poetry // May 1, 2012

The prototypical poet is a creature of the dark, naturally to be found haunting lowlight bars and passing days shuttered behind drawn curtains. The prototypical poetry reading is a heavy affair, most usually held in a drinking establishment and lubricated on all sides by “poetry juice.” There was nothing prototypical about the poetry reading held […]
