KPS Slammaster's Blog



Last night was the first Kalamazoo Poetry Slam in over two years, and it was more than I dared to hope for. There was something even more amazing than the great venue, passonate well written verse, and the engaged and appreciative audience, there was a community. Every one I’ve met over the past two days has reminded me of an old friend. It made me feel simultaneously old and young again, or to paraphrase the poet,

“they write, like warriors
they walk and talk like they mean it
they are alive
and now I am too.”

Our first 2010 slam winner (with a perfect 30 score) is “Z” a fantastic poet, who hosts the Tuesday night open-mic at Blaze Hookah Lounge. Don’t be surprised if you run into me there real soon.
