Poems a penny each? Forget it. Last time the price was that low, Gertie Stein could take any man on the Left Bank, Mr. Hemingway included. But inexpensive literary competition still exists. Tonight, 15 Minutes hosts an airfare benefit forD. C.’s Poetry Slam Team, a word- slinging foursome bound for the nationals in Ferlinghettiville-by-the-Bay at month’s end. Five dollars buys entry and an earful of verse; for a few dollars more, the barman can treat your existential dread. At 8 p.m. at 15 Minutes, 1030 15th St. NW. (202) 408-1855. (MD)
