sunday, 08.08.04 (un-conventional poetry at the nuyorican)
:: this time around i have some more back up as ray, scot, raj and
mara join me and raina for this gig. the women who invited me is an
old workshop buddy who is busy documenting the insanity that will be
the RNC. the reading is cool. i start finding out that i have a lil
bit of political poetry in me thanks to ‘getting ronald reagan to
visit the south bronx’ and ‘sorta-rican’ this time around i nail them
both pretty well. raina also brings some new hotness and a classic.
mara keeps shining and glowing. raj’s star is rising. synonymus
almost gets screwed- again but i am able to bogart the mic and keep
the crowd from watching the boys set up their gear on the fly but at
least they didnt get jipped like they did earlier in the week when
they were told they would close out for 20 minutes and instead given
five. and the PROFE is back!!! rich arrives back from NPS half way
through and the love grows.
this time around both the reading and the after party rock in many, many
