Life sucks. Da Fuk poetry gonna do about it? Maybe nothing, maybe something. Join us for this two hour Olio where we read difficult poetry that asks some tough goddamn questions: Do we give up and die? Do we retreat into quietude and wait for the storm to pass? Do we surrender to easy pleasures? Do we fight back?
The last question we will take seriously, but we will take the others seriously as well. Poetry: our last bastion.
