Poetry Night

As I post this, I'm at Seattle Poetry Slam, enjoying the ambiance. The theme is "sock puppets". I will leave you to your own imagination.

I took the stage during open mic, despite the fact that I forgot my book and was forced to access my other blog via my trusty MDA (dont you wish you had one?)

The featured poet was so awesome that I had to buy her book. I told her how awesome I thought she was and she told me she thought my "scrolling incident" was awesome... and just as we gained a comfortable convo, I pull the cord, take the book and fade into the background.

It's a fatal flaw with me. I tend to block my own blessings and pull away when things get too comfortable or personal. had I stuck around, I could have told her how her words moved me so, or even asked her how she honed her craft so well. it's times like these when I wish I were more assertive.
...oh crap... I just booed a score I thought to be too low... when our booing actually negatigely affected the score. I inadvertently made a score of a good poem worse, and looked like a dick in the process. Mother Of Everything Hopelessly Dorky... I suck! Oh well, back to the show!

Yes, yes, I know I'm a dork... and I saw you perform your poem. I really liked it... in fact, I was blown away by all the talented performance poets.

I guess I got star-struck over Tara actually talking to me and giving me positive feedback. I was overwhelmed with one of those "I'm not worthy!" moments.

You right you do block your blessing you had her right there
and could have asked all the question you want to about her craft
instead you fade into black.

I've heard that dorks are the new "cool", but I guess we'll see...
