Naughty, Naughty

I wrote an erotic poem once. It went like so: Your breasts are like two fawns /That browse among the lilies /Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb /Milk and honey are under your tongue /You are a garden locked up /You are a spring enclosed /Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates /I have come into my garden /I have eaten honeycomb and my honey /I have drunk my wine and my milk /Ooh, yeah, baby.

Okay, so I stole that from the Bible — so what? I can still read it tonight at Black Velvet, an uninhibited night of erotic poetry sponsored by the Colorado Poets Association as part of its Colfax Reading Series. Veteran and amateur poets alike will get their Valentine's Day foreplay on a few nights early as they share their naughtiest fantasies and experiences in the form of über-literate smut — either original or borrowed.

Kinky? You bet. Gross? I sure hope so. The britches start bulging and panties commence dropping at 6:30 p.m. in the downstairs reading room of Hooked on Colfax, 3215 East Colfax Avenue. Prizes will be awarded and an after-party follows the reading. You gotta be eighteen to get down, and — sorry, swingers — you gotta keep your clothes on. Get more information at or by calling Hooked at 303-398-2665.
Mon., Feb. 12, 7 p.m.
