I am an organizer of the KW Poetry Slam. We started it last year (we being myself, Lindsay Jack, Jessalyn Broadfoot and Timaj Garad), and this year we are running our full second season.
This year I am not going out for the KW slam team, but I am still performing at the slams and doing organizing. I just want to share the poems I want to share without regard for scores. I shared a new poem called “Open your eyes wide” and also performed my Odes to Cheese, Garlic and Gummy Bears. Somehow I came in 2nd. Good times.
