What? Poetry with no BS?

Most of what we know about Poetry at the 33 is that Kim Addonizio either used to hang out there or still does. That may sound like it isn't very much to go on, but Addonizio is one of the city's most underrated talents. She's a fucking genius, if you want to know the truth. If there's any justice in the world, Poetry at the 33 is destined to someday be one of those places young writers make pilgrimages to from all over the world, just to take in the atmo at the very same bar Kim Addonizio used to sit at. Or maybe still does. We're fans, not stalkers. "Did she compose poems at the booth over there?" The travelers will wonder. "Did she come up with the idea for (her novel) Little Beauties while watching people walk by?"
