Poetry Slam  
Yesterday was another warm sunny autumn day, so, I took off from work early.

I stop by my regional library to browse. There was a flier “Now in its 5th year! Poetry Slams”. I had been intending to go to one of these since last year. They are held once a month for eight months at different libraries around the county. The “Grand Slam Finale” is at the Central library in May.

Serendipity, the October Slam was that night. It was a lot of fun. There is an “open mic” at the beginning where anyone can read any persons poems. Then there is the contest where people get up and read there own poems. I was a judge. (those who can’t, judge).

I plan to go to a few more. I really want to go to the “Grand Slam” in May. That is when all the winners compete.
