One year ago today I first participated in the Albuquerque slam scene as the sacrificial poet at Poetry & Beer. Two championships, three features, multiple slams and tons of new friendships later, I can hardly believe it! All I set out to do was to try sharing some of my poems publically, and while things took off in a way I didn’t expect or intend, I’m still enjoying it and still making time for art and words among my many pursuits and commitments.
So come celebrate with me! Next Saturday, March 15th I offer some poems during the Rhythm & Words benefit for the Agora Crisis Center at ArtBar starting at 7:00 p.m. See Facebook for more info. No better way to celebrate my anniversary and the momentous Ides of March!
