It was hot…..and I’m not talking temperature

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Despite the sweltering heat, DC’s guerrillas were out in force! Members of the DC Slam Team and Youth Slam Team were in the house and tearing it up! Our little Mo celebrated his birthday and Ted Stein’s “Lorax” Puppet Show was an absolute hit! Laurie collapsed Aquarius, Damian’s sick of how cops talk to him, Jonathan Tucker was so hot Smokey the Bandit hates him and Brandon words are his protection and weapons. Patience’s gorgeous voice tied nooses with tongues, Rown encouraged us to leave our prison homes, and Lacy invited us to see through magic glasses. Tirrah began with a whisper, while Ben had a naggin’ suspicion we are all one while Michael spoke of “ungodly” things. Shannon’s focus tuned to oversight and Ashira’s Hebrew stylings were desert languages swallowing us, easily. Dimante’s chorus was silence and Keith was washed down the gutter only to make his way back up the drain.  Shanique cackled at calamity and Mo warned …he’ll protest all of you! Be sure to come to our last outdoor Lyrical Ambush – Sept 14!!!

The DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency (GPI) is an anti-authoritarian, collaborative, pro-humanity artists' collective incorporating music, rhythm, spoken word, community and resistance.
