This Sunday night, Big Bear cafe will host its monthly poetry reading – a series called “Cheryl’s Gone.” The event, which begins at 6 p.m., will feature poets Zachary Schomberg, Emily Kendal Frey, and Joe Hall. Schomberg and Frey both hail from Portland, Oregon, and have forthcoming books of verse. I’m duly amused by Frey, whose poems include “Recurring Sex Dream Involving Don Cheadle.” Feed your mind, listen to some words, its what Byron would want you to do.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
