If poetry were a beverage to be imbibed, this month's So & So reading at CAM Raleigh would offer a unique flight of the good stuff to savor. Three local writers with works-in-progress or recently published first books will take the mic: Michelle Dove (currently teaching at Duke), with the ruminative, relational, and downright funny poetry and flash fiction of her first book, Radio Cacophony, which we reviewed in October; Travis Smith, who works at Flyleaf Books and is the author of the chapbook Zodiac B, where contemporary lyrics startle with natural and fantastical imagery alike; and Colin Post, a doctoral student at UNC-Chapel Hill, who traces and breaks the analog-digital divide through multimedia poetry. With this 101st reading in the series, So & So curator Chris Tonelli brings something for everyone. Come for a tasting of what poetry—perhaps in forms fresh to you—can offer in variety, wit, intelligence, and delight.
