|Prof. Daniel Nester|
There were some excellent poems in the open mic from Kevin Peterson (using the handle "Grandma's Hot Apple Pie"), Elizag, Leslie Michelle, Jessica Layton (sex as words/words as sex), & me. Even the slam principals read: Daniel Nester (a memoir written when he was 26 years old), & Slam co-hosts Mojavi & Dain Brammage.
Kevin Peterson volunteered to be the sacrificial poet to prime the judges, but sort of screwed it up by reciting "Coming Up" by Ani DiFranco (which he announced before he recited the piece, the scoring being pointless because in a Slam you must perform original work. Plus, how can you give Ani a low score?
