July Open Mic at Bossa

Bossa was a-buzz upstairs in July, with GPI regs Luis and Jess holdin’ it down. We were joined by a lovely audience, and it was one person’s first open mic experience—we hope she enjoyed it! We wish Luis and his wife love and luck next week during the delivery of their third child. Here are some highlights:

Luis was sharp like barbed wire and helped us think about the things that really make us smile.

Jess tapped into her dreams to find the words to spin—a snap then whirl of inspiration.

Luis’s skills were outrageous—more like amazing; he’d rather be broke and outspoken than choke on the words he never had the balls to say.

Jess grossed out the girls with her romantic poem and pledged her heart to the Web of the Free and the Roam of the Brave.

Now here’s the Melange…

Behold the dawn, because we’re bringing the light
We’ve got heights in sight, but few ladders to climb
My persona’s irrelevant when demons need slaying
We’re going to get it in a big way from sea to shining sea
Who’s got a Facebook? Oh my, it’s quite a profile, ain’t it?
Amorphous beast, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways
How can we be a people, when our people are deconstructed on the regular?
I am you and you are me; no nomenclature between us—a simple function unites us

And let that simple function be the next GPI open mic. See you at Coffy Café in Columbia Heights on Thursday, 7/25. Peace.
