PATRICK STEWART'S FEEDBACK ON MY SLAM POETRY
In college, I was into the slam poetry scene (I had dreadlocks too - it was a whole thing). When the Royal Shakespeare Company came to town, they held an event called a Sonnet Slam. It was American Idol style - the judges gave feedback after each performance. I went first and Patrick Stewart was my judge...
- •"The way you say each word, it has no meaning"
- •"Why didn't you dance your performance? It would have had more of an impact"
- •"You might as well been munching on corn flakes"
- •I forgot to mention I was wearing a puffy shirt.
