POP POETRY: #12poetsin12months releases book #16!
“Monkey in the Grass”Join Prosperos and Spartan Press to celebrate the release of book #4 in the 2016 POP POETRY: #12poetsin12months sequence featuring:

UNIQUE’S first book of verse: MONKEY IN THE GRASS

Unique is one of KC’s most promising emerging poets, though in some ways it’s unfair to label him as “youth” or “emerging.” He has years of history dedicated to poetry activism in the city of his birth. He has represented KC nationally at Brave New Voices and in Louder Than A Bomb, he is a current youth mentor with KC POETREE and is signed on as a junior host at KC’s long running poetry open mic, Beatnik Freaknik with Dr. Nightlife Jones.

His book is an insightful and emotionally jarring exposure of a boy’s ascent to manhood in the midst of family disfuction and in the racially charged modern America.

Prim-ONE brings his MICRO-SLAM to the stage at 9:00 pm! this is an open sign-up poetry competition with a very special prize! #wordofmouth

sign-up at 6:30, show at 9
