It’s the Wednesday closest to Valentine’s, which means it’s time for our annual Erotic Poetry Night! Poets are encouraged to bring original erotic poems, poems about sex, or poems about naughtiness in general. This year’s event will also feature the Boston Poetry Slam’s first-ever Head-to-Head Dirty Haiku Slam, produced by Gary Hoare: eight haikusters will slam off in pairs to see who can pack the most nasty possible into seventeen syllables. Sign-ups for the slam must be in advance, but the rest of the mic time is wide open to everyone. Is it hot in here, or is it just you?

Slammers have been confirmed! Audience can expect a wild selection of raunch and trouble from Patrick S., Jade Sylvan, Adam Stone, Cassandra de Alba, Harlym125, April Penn, Jessica Lovina O’Neill, and Brandi Macdonald.

Doors for the show open at 7:15. The erotic-themed open mic begins at 8:00, featuring head-to-head dirty haiku matches throughout the night. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
