Glitched Out, Spoken Word

Story Behind the Video

So, not too long ago, I was heading down to the old Red Eye Cafe for a cup of Joe and some free wi-fi.  When I got there, the place was completely packed out, from wall to wall! I had forgotten about the Patchwork Festival series that was going on, and it was the Poetry night.  So I didn't want to bother anyone with my internet work, so I went into the back room.  I ran into a few friends that I hadn't seen in a while, and the next thing I know, I was being challenged to go up and "do a poem".  

I'm not a poet.  I used to be married to one, and she was sure to let me know (frequently) that accapella rap verses are not the same as Poetry.  But, that's exactly what I did.

I think it went over pretty well, and afterward Alex invited me to do the whole thing on video.  So all-in-all, it was a pretty cool night.  I got to hear some good poetry, meet up with friends, and perform a little.
