When I slammed in 1996-97 I had a few signature pieces that I used - Blood Brothers, and the Uses of Nature. I also slammed on occasion with Inverse Origami the title poem to my chapbook.
This year I thought I would try slamming with some of my song lyrics - which are more slam-like than most of my recent poetry.
On Oct. 1, there were two rounds and I used "She Wouldn't Take Me Home" and "Without You" which are songs of mine that I wrote long before I ever heard of slam... It worked I guess, as I came in second in that evening's slam. Go figure.
