How Hookup... Observe the Dark Side of Poetry
Maybe you're a poet but your date doesn't know it. Take some advice: leave the poetry to the professionals - or at least take your date to tonight's "B is for Bad Poetry" reading at KGB bar before trying your own hand at "Roses are red..." (or a gem like this):
The bar is home to the artsy literary types who love the written verse, so if your date does too, you're in luck. If not, don't fret -- the two of you will still have fun because the reading is guaranteed to make you laugh. With readings from Pamela August Russel ( author of B is for Bad Poetry), Melissa Broder (When You Say One Thing But Mean Your Mother) and more, you'll have enough info to put things in perspective - or pick up a few tips.
Propose this as a date here.
