Perfect your comedic chops. Fine-tune your rhythm and rhyme. Sharpen your literary arsenal, area poets. The ringmaster waits. Linguistic smackdown--with words and vague symbolism replacing oiled muscles, mustaches and stretched spandex--will ensue at the Pub at UTD to determine the poetry champion of DFW: Dallas vs. Fort Worth. DJs, bands and urban theatrics will set the tone for the battle, which commences at 10 p.m. Thursday. Admission is free. Visit utdallas.edu/suaab.
