Are you looking for a poetry event to spice up your Valentine’s Day? Check out the sixth SpeakEasy poetry reading this Sunday evening, February 12, 7:00-9:00, at the Amadeus Project, 1209 Cornwall Avenue in Bellingham, WA.
This SpeakEasy will have a unique format, consisting of couples co-presenting their poems. Says organizer Luther Allen, “We will have close to 20 couples reading about five minutes of poetry each, related to the theme of ‘Love Uncensored’ — meaning romantic relationships: attraction, passion, desire, gratitude, compromise, and, well, you know, love and all its entanglements.” Here’s a .pdf listing some of the couples who’ll be reading: SpeakEasy 6 flyer
Since he won’t have pre-screened the poems, Allen cautions that this event is “not appropriate for children.” A donation to the Amadeus Project is voluntary and appreciated. Enjoy!
