....I write poems...and say them out loud...sometimes

Tomorrow Night!!!!! The San Diego PoetrySLAM is a competition where poets present their work and get scored by 5 judges picked randomly from the audience. 
This slam will be “Play Ground Style” 
16 poets will be allowed to sign up, 1 captain will be chosen at random, the captain will pick 4 poets and that team will compete against the defending Playground Style Champions, Team Jerrica.

Those who don’t get selected will have the option of performing during the open mic. 
Come out and watch, cheer on your favorite poet or sign up to compete!

Mirror

There was a time in my life

when I couldn’t tell the difference

between a mirror and a window.

I could stand in front of either

and see everything,

but myself.
