very fine- expecially the ? & a and final 2 poems- suggest that you always try to go without the mike first- in that for Ashion the mike kind of made his accent worse- hence his poems incomprehensible- then too, it bothers me when the audience sits in silent stupor- no applause- because they have NO UIDEA whaty the poet is talking abt- w Dora we coluld understand and love her last poem-
BUT that's kind of the poet's responsibility- if they can't sell it, too bad
Kim and Shayleen did a fabulous job
