The event creator says
The newest oldest bar in East Nashville, Dino's will again host a monthly poetry reading series. E t A l. Poetry Readings are at least one visiting poet, and at least one local poet reading an hour's worth of poetry to us culturing masses. Get provoked.


The third E t A l. Poetry Reading hosts

Visiting poet, & assistant poetry professor at Austin Peay State University, & poetry editor of Zone 3 Press, & author of "The Pine Effect" & "Qikiqtagruk: Almost An Island" Andrea Spofford


"When I meet you it is fall in California and the hillsides burn Indian summer. Place is to location is to geography is to where we are not. I drive from Texas, 24 hours of desert, four thousand windmills at Palm Springs a homecoming. One day the sky is red and the cloud cover so heavy everything glows. My front door is covered in ash the next morning..."

"...Gasping, with rain pocked skin
electric wire eyes circling
for the shore. Early,
I woke to fish, the small trout

I pulled from the river,
the size of my outstretched hand,
lay panting, his scales as blue
as the heron’s open wings

shaking in the canopy…"

Nashvillian, & assistant professor of English and Creative Writing at Belmont University, & author of "American Amen" & "Weeping At A Stranger's Funeral" Gary McDowell


"...paper means lightning,
means porch lights,

means ghosts, the terrible

harmony of its wandering body

The ghost’s dreams are in my mouth
We are becalmed We

are hulls sweating the lake"





Come, prepped or not ( Dino's has a full beer bar, plus a full burger grill, intact and refined! ).
