John Lacarbiere for Nat’l Poetry Month

Say the WordIt was a special Say the Word poetry slam tonight because it’s National Poetry Month!  To celebrate, we were given the treat of a celebrity poet, John Lacarbiere III, who stopped to entertain us with his raw, unconstrained poetry.

With permission, I was able to record some of his work to share with you.  Be ready for more poetry all month long… ’tis aere perennius.
