Sweetness 7 Cafe trades poems for coffee

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Masters of poetry and novices alike got to trade their crafted words for free caffeine Wednesday.

Sweetness 7 Cafe on Grant Street offered up free coffee to anybody who showed off their inner poet. They set up a microphone. One poetry lover even read off “The Fly” by William Blake.

Owners of the Cafe promised it wasn’t an April Fools’ Joke, too. The coffee was free to anybody who recited a poem by heart or read one from a book.
