SPOKEN WORD 28 FEBRUARY REPORT & Video footage from Writers Get Violent

by Alberto

Crowded Spoken Word, we are starting earlier but we always finish at Midnight!

Chris The Vicious Newens VS the No Meat Eater Peter Cow Killer Brown,

who read a remix of the notorious Cassius Clay’s poem “I’m The Greatest”:

“you were satisfying like peanutbutter

sweet like agave limbs unfurling into wafts of coriander

(manna my dear)”.
