Latino poetry tickled the senses in the Triangle Tuesday


Seats were filled for the Latino poets hour

The night was calm as the group of poets slowly began gathering in the Polish Triangle this past Tuesday. It was Latino Poet night at a local event called Tuesdays at the Triangle.



There were at least 13 poets all gathered, each one speaking from the joys of love, to the loss of those we hold dear and the neighborhood that Wicker Park used to be. The bilingual writings rolled off the tongue and into the ears of the expectant listener.



One of the poets did a bit of impromptu drumming that complimented the rhythm of each poem. The various poets that were there that night were varied, even though not all of them read that night. The organizer of the poetry reading was a local publishing house called Pandora lobo estepario Productions.


People filled the Triangle, waiting for the poets to begin

The auditory experience was not limited to the Latinos that night, OTH Radio Theatre was there for the first half of the night, for those in the mood for a bit of old fashioned fun. They even did a rendition of the classic routine of “Who’s on First Base” from Abbot and Costello. OTH Radio Theatre is a group of three people from Near North Montessori: Ron Tolisano, Martha Turner and Dan Tong.

The smell of Ćevapčići wafted through the air and led people to line up and buy some traditional Croatian sausages with an eggplant spread. Those with a sweet tooth could tried the delicious mini cupcakes and cookies from Sweet Cakes.
