Write and share your own poetry at Nasher Sculpture Center during a guided tour exploring the intersection of poetry and sculpture this Thursday at 6 p.m.  Discussion and reflection will be guided by poets Bruce Bond and Corey Marks, whose respective interests, say event organizers, “range from jazz guitar and metaphysical inquiry to the nature of individual experience in a larger world defined by fable, history and pop culture.” The event is free, but advance registration, available online here, is required.
