We had a great group of newcomers and regulars at our September open mic. Even those who not sure they would read that night were inspired by the end of it to share their minds, like we’ve seen at so many of our open mics. Thanks to all who came out! Here are some highlights:
Michael’s poem saw the poet and jumped; and he recounted how love does funny things before dying.
Jess’s peace poem told us we’re going to get it–hopefully without so much bullshit bullshit.
Sly showed us a reality that continually rapes a dream; hope and change seems to rest on a dusty shelf.
Suriya’s Message to the Judge…my eyes tell epic sages telepathically, ’cause words would take too long. Your majesty, I just hope your ESP is on.
Ryan OPP’d Gabe Moses, How to Make Love to a Trans Person…Realize that bodies are only a fraction of who we are; they’re just oddly-shaped vessels for hearts.
Kristie shredded Gretel…she thought she could follow herself back.
Danny said we’re mad because we were told what to want, even though we’re just dudes from Vermont; hatred will still eat your fucking heart away.
Suzi told us things you should never say to a therapist…right now I’m not trying to get committed while I pay my loan off.
Derek’s desire holds no boundaries; each time he passes city lights it reminds him of his beauty’s heart beat.
Red reminisced: you were such a charming mother[...mmm], every time you spoke you made my heart flutter; when you dreamed, you dreamed of me; your walk had theme music, and I had my dancin’ shoes on.
Ooh la la, and there was so much love to go around that night; so much love and feeling! And that’s what it’s all about. Come see us at Bossa in October, second Tuesday, 10/13, 7-9 PM, 2463 18th St. NW, DC.
