This month’s reading at Chrystie Street: go there; blow your vuvuzela

Thursday, June 17, tune into poetry.  No, seriously.  Who cares about the World Cup (besides everybody) when there’s poetry to be heard?  Show up at the Four-Faced Liar for a knuckle-biting reading match of unmatched glory.  Still not convinced?  A) that’s dumb & B) actual soccer will probably be airing on the F-FL’s TV sets, anyhow.  Not that you care.  You love poetry!
