Check out the video from the latest Improbable Places Poetry Tour stop at Mower’s Barber Shop at 269 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA this past December.
Poets got their groom on with the barber shop theme where the poems were all about hair and beauty parlor culture. A first haircut, a close shave, a hair bender, a golden lock. Flattop, bouffant, mullet, faux hawk and victory rolls. The poems raised the hair on the nape of the audiences necks and bubbled up like a good lather.
The Improbable Places Poetry Tour is Montserrat College of Art's way of bringing together student writers, local poets, area businesses, and enthusiastic listeners to celebrate the power of poetry and community. At each tour stop a new venue and theme is selected.
Thank you to Mower's Master Barber, Jay Mower for collaborating with the wonderful Colleen Michaels, Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director.
