Did you know Dallas has a budding poetry scene? Yeah, we didn't either. A poet is like an ivory billed woodpecker -a rare beautiful thing. Which is why we were excited to hear about the newest event at Wild Detectives (314 W. 8th St.) that features the word-driven up and comers in what is being called “the new SMU poetry scene.” Hear what they've mined from their lives at 7 p.m. Thursday during Rapid Readings, organized by Greg Alan Brownderville, who happens to be their professor.
