Poets in dive bars

Well where else?

Marlowe was surely at home in bars, pubs, those places where the masks fall and truths are shouted, argued, disputed, where you might fall in love for half a minute or half a night; or half a lifetime.

It was so much fun getting Drunk On Words at Abick's in Detroit, with guest performers Laura Bailey and Justin Alesna, and a crowd who understood what words are for: serious play.
