Love is in the air at the Valentine’s Day meeting of The Poets Turntable as this group of amateur and professional writers focuses on amore, liebe – yes, LOVE. Romance abounds when each member rises, in turn, to thrill the audience with similes, metaphors and word pictures that make even the coldest hearts beat faster.
But, in the midst of this memorable assemblage, one of the poets staggers to the podium, and, after uttering a few cryptic words, is overtaken by death. Someone has done in a fellow Turntable member in the midst of one of the year’s most sentimental events.
But, it’s time for poetic justice as everyone gathers to investigate the death and to find the culprit who turned Valentine’s Day into a bad rhyme.
