Every Wednesday at the Ugly Mug coffeehouse for some time now, the self-deprecating Ben Trigg and Steve Ramirez have been bringing a little poetic culture to Orange County. Pretty admirable feat for a couple of "idiots." Don't let the caffeine or the decadent '70s-hair-salon-esque atmosphere of the Ugly Mug distract you from the beauty of the spoken word. After attending this reading, you might be inspired to concoct your own poem: "How Smart Two Idiots Can Be."
