Bleed Your Heart Out

Just because it's a day for roses doesn't mean you have to play W.B. Yeats fawning over Maud Gonne. Why even delve into such mushiness? Perhaps you've lost that loving feeling and would rather just kick it at an old school open mic. Page One Bookstore (11018 Montgomery NE) runs poetry events on the second Tuesday of each month, which, coincidentally falls on V-Day this February. Poets waxing on any topic can sign up beginning at 6:45 p.m. for a chance to read. The open mic will be followed by a reading from Yasmeen Najmi, author of the chapbook "Ankh." The event is free.
