November’s Open Mic at Bossa

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Highlights from GPI’s November open mic:

Luis suggested you sit back and marinate a while, think about the things that really make you smile.

Lisa read OPP—Martin Espada—her eyes open and unseen like jellyfish dangling in the ocean at midnight.

Mike debuted with Diesel: beautiful people live life like there’s no sequel.

Lucy read OPP—Anis Mojgani—you do have the right to sing out loud; all souls are equal.

Dane declared the time for fine is now; her pen is a musket.

Steve recalled that nothing drew mom’s ire more than jazz.

Jess sang of one entity that holds the economy of a country in its grip while exploiting democracy.

Maya thanked someone for bringing color into her life—the kind that’s worth crossing oceans for.

Luis’s race is human
Dane’s poem is about the journey
Lucy took The Plunge
Mike made us move, learn, change, evolve…

All this and more at the GPI monthly open mic. See you there next time on the third Tuesday in February, back at Bossa after a holiday-plus hiatus.
