Partying With Poets

One of the things I love most about slam poetry is that I get the pop culture references. Shane Hawley’s use of Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner as a metaphor for addiction? As brilliant in execution as it seems goofy in concept. I always laugh a little bit when a particular line dance comes up as it did when Anis Mojgani delivered this reading of “Direct Orders.”

This morning I found this piece of loveliness which also mentions that dance in passing, “A Case for the Late Night Joy Junkies,” performed by Thuli Zuma as part of Taylor Mali’s Page Meets Stage series.

Goosebumpily gorgeous, right? What’s giving you goosebumps these days? You’re welcome to leave a link in the comments. Have a great Wednesday!
