The 2016 Death Rattle Writers Festival concluded Sunday, Oct. 9 with an explicit poetry reading in the back room of Pete's Tavern—aka "The Cave". A crowd of more than 50 people packed into the small space, bantered with the readers and laughed uproariously.

As befitted the event's description, poem topics included boozing and graphic sex with both real and fictional characters. The reading also featured an analysis of the current presidential race by local poet Ben Duran, which went as follows: "What the fuck?"

Duran noted this was a work in progress.
