symmetrical leaves bisect each other
showing off their powerful green,
simply...a reflection of growth
but really much more than a sheen.

Well, I'm too old to perform at Louder Than a Bomb, but this documentary about a poetry slam is so inspirational that I had to try a short poem. Imagine the connections that teens can make with poetry and performing on an individual level, then a group level, then a school level and on and on. Potent, awesome, and transformative - you can view this film for free in its entirety (about 100 minutes) in partnership with the Global Education Conference through Friday, Nov 18th...then you'll want to buy it, especially if you are involved with learning or social culture issues. Do it - it can help make a change! Naples, FL
