Poetry Slams on the Net

"What's a Poetry Slam? Fearless poets getting up there and competing for money! And YOU the AUDIENCE decide the winner!"
(from the Home Page of the 1995 US National Poetry Slam)

"Simply put, Slam is the rock and roll of poetry."
(from Mychele's Poetry Slams)


(Mario:) ". . . Do you think the whole world is a metaphor for something?"
Neruda's mouth gaped and his robust chin seemed ready to drop right off his face.
"Did I ask a stupid question?"
"No, my friend, no."

---Mario and Pablo Neruda in the book The Postman by Antonio Skármeta

"But it doesn't count, 'cause it just came out by accident."
"All images are accidents, my son."

---Pablo Neruda and Mario in the book The Postman by Antonio Skármeta
