The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry, Locust Grove, OK, invites you to a Valentine’s Day poetry event: Dog From Hell: V-Day Poetry ROMP. Tour the museum, engage in the interactives, mingle, and participate in a poetry workshop to make your own Valentine’s Day poems and cards—typical love poetry not required. Poet Charles Bukowski called love a dog from hell, so what metaphor can you create for it?
This event will be on the Saturday before Valentine’s Day, February 9, from 2:00-6:00 p.m. Admission is by donation only, which helps keep the museum open. ROMP is not a typical museum and not for poets only: It is for all people because true poetry is, too. Hot chocolate, coffee, and snacks provided.
The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry is located two miles west of Locust Grove or 35 miles east of Tulsa, just off 438 Rd.
Mark your calendars, folks. No matter what you think about love, Valentine’s Day, poetry, or getting together in the Oklahoma countryside on a cold day in February, you are guaranteed a good time at this event. Sue me if it don’t work out for ya, ya hear?
