It's difficult enough to hew out a life as a poet, but the process becomes even more arduous when you fall off a four-story building. Mathieu Paul Allsup survived just such an accident, and not surprisingly will be unable to work while recuperating. Who supports the artist when the artist is laid up? Other artists, of course. The Get Born Poetry Series returns from beyond the pale for one evening to help out friend and fellow poet Allsup with a benefit reading tonight at 7 p.m. at Duff's (392 North Euclid Avenue; getbornbeat.blogspot.com). Joseph Sulier, Tony Renner, Erin Wiles, Julia Gordon-Bramer and a host of other kind souls read from their work, with all proceeds at the door going to help Allsup. Admission is $5, but if you were to donate more you'd prove yourself to be a fine and compassionate indidividual as well as a supporter of the arts in general, and one fortunate artist in particular.
