The love was palpable…

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

It was another banging night with the GPI at Bossa.  Damian showed his vulnerable side, Laurie & Jess exploded with love,  Cherie’s musical stylins brought tingles, Shelby spoke of sex while Shahid wished he could stop filling out forms in triplicate and simply rewind.   We learned 99 Ways to Please, then leave a Man, Peter went “boom” with his love life, Tova spoke of a desire to paint on everything and Lacy warmed humanity back to 98.6 degrees.   Our monthly feature Michelle received rave reviews as she spoke of love as sand that gets everywhere, conjuring Jane Foster, the Vagina Monologues and how we sometimes “straddle the intersection to leave or to go for far to long.”  Marcos sang us a love song, Kim admitted “self awareness is sexy, but cuteness is my weakness”, and Erin, while protesting her poetic skills – killed it at the mike with a love poem all her own.  Chris Otten combined visuals with words to discuss the true value of the stimulus plan, Keisha resurrected her 17-year old self, Jess was love.crazy. and Jaime called to account motherf@#$rs.  Lyndi drew comparisons between war and sex and Elizabeth brought us home as a “father f@$#r” in the “hall of moaning.”

Another amazing night…… GPI provides the vehicle, but it would mean nothing if it wasn’t filled with such talented voices.  Thanks to all the poets and appreciators!  See you March 9!
