    The episode tonight had a few REALLY REALLY good poems and performances.

    This one guy did something on the word nig.ga/nig.ger....

    The way he delivered it and used the stage was incredible....

    Anyways, I'm not really into poetry but this kinda turned me onto it....how can I find out where there are poetry lounges or whatever in my area?

    I'm in Northern VA/DC area....

    I've been watchin Def Poets for the best 4 years now. I really liked the piece floetry did today.

    Their arent many spoken word joints around in memphis we just got 2. The Java Cabana and something else...

    guess you might have to go to google and put "Poetry Cafes in Northern Virginia" or something
