Over the past two weeks, I’ve performed this one poem at about five different venues. Tonight, I have just arrived back from an open mic at Cafe Chartier in Lexington, SC. The video below is from last night’s performance at Sit-a-Spell Cafe in Augusta, GA. It is a fairly new piece called “Knockout” first performed at the Black Box Coffee House Show at the Aiken Community Theatre. Enjoy and leave your thoughts below. Tis the season of poetry readings and great thought.
