Best weepy self-congratulatory poetry slam - 2004
PINK PONY WEST POETRY READING SERIES
Sometimes poetry open-mic nights take on aspects of group therapy. Perhaps because the PINK PONY WEST POETRY READING SERIES is a feel-good open forum for all kinds of amateur slammers, middle-aged folklorists tend to burst into self-created hymns while others dominate the stage with cringe-inducing sexual innuendos. The pleasant dark-wood basement feel and the ready drinks at the Cornelia St. Café only slightly ease the poetic discomfort.
