Two decades ago, a brazenly hirsute singer named Paula Cole lamented, “Where have all the cowboys gone?” Hard to say, Paula, but judging by the prose that permeates today’s popular culture, a more salient question for the braless divas of 2015 to pose might be, “Where have all the poets gone?”
Fortunately, poets and wordsmiths still abound, albeit almost entirely in a cultural distributary. They go to events like Uptown P.E.N. (poetry event night) at Practical Art, 5070 North Central Avenue. This month’s free event features poet Bill Campana at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14. Visit www.practical-art.com or call 602-264-1414..
