dead poets' slam

On Monday, Vancouver Poetry Slam held its annual Dead Poets' Slam. I dressed up as Lorenz Hart of Rogers and Hart, and recited the lyrics to "The Lady is a Tramp." It was a very ghostly and poetic evening. I am pictured here with my dead friend, Jim Carroll.

question: who is your favourite dead poet?

mompoet - happy to be alive, glad to play dead for one evening, once a year

That was me, Carol above. I've forgotten how to leave comments!
