What an experience!
It was an inspiring night. The open mike poems were varied and inspiring from ceilings falling in to the intricacies of eating river snails. Brilliant and funny and sad and, most of all, entertaining.
My spot was over all too soon and, surprise, I really enjoyed it – especially once my knees stopped their nervous dance. It helped that the audience was at once knowledgeable and friendly – the mood set by Agnes Meadows, an especially warm and welcoming host, and great poet. Thank you for Bananas Agnes.
What next, I ask myself? How to make the next step? And make it I will…watch this space.
