It was raining words at Bossa in August

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

We had an excellent night of poetry at Bossa in August. New faces and GPI vets shared their hearts and minds in poetic and even comedic verses, and we all got to know each other a little bit better. Ah, GPI. Here are some words that stuck out for me:

Laurie brought some old school Jon Miller to the mix, because he’d put a vibrator on her conscience.

Durrell recalled their relationship as one-of-a-kind–he saw it, he knew it, it passed him by.

Jess gave a rather annoyed impression of the press.

Rob asked how can people fall in love and fall out of love–shouldn’t people fly in love and fall out of love?

Elizabeth made a comeback with an invocation of the muse; egoless pure, she comes to you to bring you bliss and lift you to the stage.

JaMichael rides her with white knuckles and pulls her knobs expertly. (ooh, la la)

Sunny prayed Shoshana, prayed that you can feel shame and love at once.

So much more was said. So much more to hear! Hope to see you out at the next one.
