Ode to Celebration

Just in case you weren’t aware, It’s National Poetry Month, you square. Kick it with spoken-word at the Bohemia Room, You won’t see rappin’ Karl Rove -- Just real-word weavers wielding their loom, Tonight at 3390 Mary St., in Coconut Grove. The event is hosted by Ingrid B., And until 9, the admission’s free. She aims to bring, this month every week, “A plethora of new poets never heard before.” And we know what you’re thinking, you hopeless geek: Sure, it’s not what this place is known for. But live a little, try something new -- Maybe you have some dope words in you. Walk-ins are welcome, doors open at 8, But if you come later, it’s not out of reach: After 9, it’s just 10 bucks at the gate, Still less than a Corona on good old South Beach.
