first time at Carleton University

Last night, at Carleton University, Stephen was encouraged to perform at a poetry SLAM organized by Ottawa’s leading poetry team,  Urban Legends – 3rd place winner of the  Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.

Reluctantly he did. And his lack of enthusiasm was evident in his first round. However, a performance of a shortened version of his poem “Where I’m From There Is No Freedom” in the last round, gave him the only perfect  score (10) for the night from one judge, with the rest  giving; 9.9, 9.8, 9.7 and 9.6. more…

Read full poem below -: from the collection "Letters To My Son"

Her heart is Florentia after the brush laid thus

before Michelangelo, before Pisa and Siena.
I am the Eiffel Tower to her France,
her cri de coeur,
I écrire freedom where chanteurs fail,
where la historia imprison
and el amor is stained by the artista.
