Poetry Returns to the Ave | City Week | Tucson Weekly
Words on the Avenue returns for a new season of poetry on Sunday, Aug. 30 at Café Passe, 415 N. 4th Ave., 6:30 p.m. The open mic is open to all community writes to share just about everything they've put in their heads or on a piece of paper. Tucson Youth Poetry Slam's Jose Martinez is the featured poet for the evening. His poem "The Ten Commandments of Being Mexican" has become well known in the community and is a great example of using poetry as a primary weapon to battle injustices such as being stereotyped by the way he looks/thinks/feels. Roch Mirabeau will be there on the ones and twos, and Teré Fowler-Chapman will host. Suggested donation is $5. Open to everyone. The event's Facebook has more information.
