Today is April 30th…so today is the last poem of my National Poetry Month poem-a-thon.
Conducting a search on the keywords ‘Up From the Ashes” and “Wabash Triangle Cafe” I found another Wabash Slam Poet I had lost track of over the years, but she’s also been invited to the performance on June 16th I mentioned a couple days ago. She was actually the winning slam poetess on the final week of the Wabash Triangle Cafe’s existence. March 16th, 1994. This wasn’t unusual, as she was one of the frequent winners. I’m thrilled to discover she will be at the showcase.
She posted on her blog/journal awhile back one of her popular poems from The Wabash era: Riding the Blue Bus (only for those over the age of 18)
