Tonight, much to the chagrin of the official Slam bartender Kim, we were upstairs at Valentines to make room for a band in the usual poets' spot. We were just as funky & even louder to carry our voices over the sound of electric guitars & drums.
There was a respectably outrageous selection of poets signed up for the open mic, with Jess Listen to my Words, Leslie Michelle, Bless, D. Alexander Holiday, & Mojavi (riffing off "Moody's Mood for Love").
I had taken a week off from the Slam, but decided to jump back in tonight. The late addition of Jessica, who had also read at the open mic, brought the field up to 5 (= N) so that my performance of the 3 Guys from Albany classic "Physics" put me in 5th place, beaten out (or off) by Jess's masturbation poem.
Walk With Us.
