February Open Mic at Bossa

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

The GPI poets held it down and inspired even more people from the audience in February at Bossa. A few GPI vets shared some of their classics and new pieces and as always welcomed new voices to the mic. Here are a few highlights…

Shahid had been caught by colonial arachnids and is learning to be free by digging and putting roots back under his tree.

Jessica has come to say down to oppression. Yeah-ee-yeah.

Nelson said your disaster is elegant benevolence.

Nischa danced until six by the dead riverbed. She’ll hold you, so you don’t come crashing down. Can the eye of your lens magnify each moment?

Jeff misses hip hop. He misses when it was honest and vibrant and different. We lose control of our narrative everyday.

But we can get it back at places like the GPI open mic at Bossa. See you there next month on the second Tuesday, 7-9 PM. – Jessica
