i’m a judge for the largest youth poetry slam in the world. talented, inspiring high school students from across the city compete for the ltab champ title. the best poem thus far was by a young woman from phoenix academy entitled, anti-swagger.  semi finals today at steppenwolf theater @ 4:00pm.
this was the winner from 2008. nate’s parents were drug addicts and he persevered through real life issues growing up on a rough side of town. these are our youth. and while most talk about how our youth are apathetic, lazy, attention deficit disordered, i say most people aren’t listening.
