Oh my! My goal tonight was to not get cut in the first round (of four). Not only did I not get cut in the first round, I came in 6th out of 10. I advanced to the second round and placed 3rd out of 7! Then I went on to the third round and came in 4th of 5! Does that mean I’m #4 in the city? Wow! It was a great night, everyone was on their game, and the crowd had fabulous energy. Damien Flores got the title (felicidades!) followed by Zachary Kluckman and Mercedes Holtry. I’m just stoked to have been included on the stage with some of the poets I most admire in this super-talented city. Today was a good day — buenas noches Burque! 🙂
Hooray, Sooz – congratulations! And kudos to Damien! You are both very gifted and I am so excited you are being recognized!
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!! You rocked it for going to the third round! Woot!!! And Damien was great, too. 🙂
