FIRSTIES

Back in my student days I learned that the best way to avoid the anxiety of public speaking was to volunteer to go first, to jump right in before the panic could take hold.  On those rare occasions when I slam (YES, I have slammed, and NO, I don’t like it. Love the players- hate the game.) I always volunteer to perform in the first round.  So when Gabe and Kirk said they wanted to move the Kzoo Slam from Saturday to Thursday, I was all about it.  Being the kickoff event for three nights of kick-ass poetry and spoken word seems perfect to me.  Now I can sit back and relax on Friday and Saturday and just enjoy the show.  I love firsties !!

By the way, we had a fine turnout for our first solo slam on Thursday night, but there were still a few seats left unfilled- you know who you are.  There was a good mix of old friends and new faces.  Two extra virgin poets, that means folks who had never read their poetry in public before.  And another Kzoo Slam first, our top two poets in the first round: Philip and Brishen Miller; round two was a father vs. son slam off. 

Sorry Dad, you got served.

1st place Brishen Miller 29.9

2nd place Philip Miller 29.0
