As a followup on my critique of slam as well as PaTwar, check out
."Poetry's Kinship with Violence & War"
on Gabriel Guddin’s blog. It is an excellent critique on the war implications inherent in poetry events. It takes the sports lexicon to task for its homosexual repressions and the shame of art subjugation.

I am in the process of developing a more thoughtful critique of the mass psychology that is demonstrated by peer judges and crowds-with-apparent-power so obviously on display at a slam event. It can happen here.

I have added some new links. Thanks to Caterina.net and the work of Billy Mills at Native Voices.
