W4tB in May

W4tB Open Mic with Bob Lawrence & Wayne Allen Jones 
UNCHARTED BOOKS
2620 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

Waiting 4 the Bus has long stood as a bastion for poets who are interested in sharing poetry in a relaxed setting without bells and whistles. It is designed to fight the scourge of genre.
Two very talented genre busters are Bob Lawrence and Wayne Allen Jones. It is a clash of styles that make a fantastic Oreo cookie of poetry and Love.
My apologies to Oreo for using them in my advertising
My apologies to Bob and Wayne for calling them an overrated and higlhy addictive cookie

BYOB
sitting is limited, so no one would find it odd if you brought your own chair.
The poetry is free, but we do request a monetary donation to pay the features. We suggest only that you give what you can
