Guest post by Taylor Mali! http://bit.ly/JB4IJe

Lots more poetry and all our movies and videos at DevlinPix http://bit.ly/DevlinPix

The first thing to notice about this performance, which comes from the final stage of the 2000 National Poetry Slam in Providence, RI, is how loud the audience can be BEFORE the poem starts. You can hear someone yell out "I love you Taylor" before I begin; but that's tame! Sometimes that good-natured hooting and hollering can last almost 30 seconds, and if you're not prepared for it you can lose your focus.

The second thing I notice is how short my hair is. I really do look like a Republican! READ TAYLOR'S FULL COMMENTARY HERE: http://bit.ly/JB4IJe
