The poetry slam was hosted at a local coffee house. We made a 10 block walk from her school to the coffee house.
They are fortunate to have Mr. Bob, a faculty member at NC School of the Arts, as the drama teacher at Elizabeth's school. He's also the co-slam master for the local slam club in our area.
Elizabeth did a magnificent job both writing and performing her poem. She earned a 26.8 out of a possible 30 points in the poetry slam.
Sorry I ate the plums
you were saving for dinner.
They tasted so good
that I felt great and powerful.
They tasted like a big, juicy popsicle.
