Bonehouse at the Bar

  • The Wild Detectives 314 West Eighth Street Dallas, TX, 75208 United States (map)

Enjoy some local draft beer and local draft poetry at your favorite Dallas bar/bookstore, The Wild Detectives, 3pm Dec. 12

Bonehouse is a group of local poets who believe that good poetry happens within thoughtful community. Poetry is meant to be heard, and they have a particular commitment to inviting listeners to participate in the critical activity of poetry, the experience of a poem.

They take their name from a line in Gerard Manley Hopkins’ "The Caged Skylark" as a reflection of their common interest in the life of the body, a life awkwardly and beautifully strung between spirit and dirt.
