Star Wars and poetry, two great tastes that taste great togeth.... excuse me, what?

Thanks to LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment, there's a virtual Star Wars universe online where people spend time living out their Skywalker-inspired fantasies.

I sense a disturbance in the Force. This really can't be very healthy for some people.

Well, now there's a new fake attraction in this fake universe. The House of Poetry! That's right. It's a virtual coffee house where players are invited to post their poems and chat with their poetry-loving peers in an online, droid-infested forum. Here's more:
The House of Poetry is open 24 hours a day and is a great place to meet new people (or aliens depending on your taste). Every first Friday of the month, the regulars of the location meet to talk about writing and poetry. If you're interested in gaining access to this place, you'll be pleased to know that admission is free.

If you're passionate about writing and play LucasArts' Star Wars Galaxies, you might want to drop by The House of Poetry to chat with some of the people there. Heck, you probably won't find any other place in the whole galaxy where you can openly post your thoughts without getting shot, cut, or trampled by a Bantha.

It's like the Art Bar open mic set for the weird and socially inept, just like the actual Art Bar open mic set, where I once had the misfortune of seeing two people dressed as Klingons (different brand of geekdom, I know) reciting something (verse?) in the make-believe Klingon language. It was both ridiculous and disturbing. It was disticulous.

One of those Klingons wasn't Christian Bok, by any chance?
