PALABRA — an evening of poetry
Hosted by Ted Washington
This week is THE BLUE LIGHT Adult Themed Poetry.
This is a dark time. Which means it’s time for some sex poems.
This edition of Palabra is for adults so bring your words of debauchery and carnal pleasures. Make us sweat, make us nervous, make us horny.
The Featured artist is Edwin Decker Edwin is a freelance journalist/columnist who resides in San Diego California. His work has appeared in local magazines and newspapers such as San Diego City Beat, San Diego Reader, The San Diego Union-Tribune as well as various newspapers and magazines around the country.
His biweekly humor/satire column, Sordid Tales, has been running for nearly 20 years in San Diego CityBeat and can be found here sdcitybeat.com/news-and-opinion/sordid-tales
Edwin Decker also writes poetry, if that's what you call it. His book, Barzilla and other Psalms was nominated for a 2007 San Diego Book Award which sounds impressive but, if we're being honest, is the kind of book you read in the bathroom.
Edwin Decker will be dead soon so you should come out and see him when you can.
After Edwin's reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.
Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
