Went to photograph an event on campus today called ‘Poetry Slam’. It was basically a “fun competitive” performance poetry reading, where students from UTSC and Guelph wrote their own poems and read them on stage.
Everyone was obviously very talented (I definitely couldn’t write poems like that and express them with such passion), but to be honest, it wasn’t something I’d like to go to again.
I’m assuming that one must be quite unique to appreciate this form of art. As for me, well… I could only imagine myself in one of those “hippie bars” where everyone was having some kind of mass orgy around me.
