One thought on “Open-Mic Readers, October 2011

  1. What a ______ reading! Dean Rader is so cool I want to _____ like him. And the open mic reading afterwards was the best ever. Dave’s poem made me _____ so much my mouth hurt. What a humorous, yet touching poem. (Seriously, Dave, you have the biggest ______, and it shows in your poems.) With his poem "My Paranoia," Dennis (AKA, RAD) once again shows us that he is _______ as _____. But the star of the evening–besides Dean, that is–has to be Ainsley who recited her poem with so much heart that it moved me and made my _____ watery. Also, not sure if anyone else notice, but I heard the f___ word at least three times. That’s a record for us mild-mannered people. ______ you all for a great evening!
