Mile Haiku: Video from the Blue Mustang poetry reading
Almost a hundred people piled into the Denver Public Library basement on Monday to write, read and hear poetry inspired by DIA's Blue Mustang. Organized by Westword, the event... happened. We think it was a success, but we don't plan many poetry slams, so it's hard to say. Anyway, a few of the poems were captured by our own Jared Jacang Maher, and you can hear them above. The first, local cool guy Jared Berger (aka Ofosho), won over the crowd and took home the top honors. Our favorite is the last -- and not just because it's Westword staff writer Joel Warner's.
