Poetry Slam by Karina
"We started the Teen Hangout by introducing ourselves and describing something we did in March that was interesting, cool or fun. Then Slam Masters Henry and Richie described how some poetry doen't have to rhyme, or have specific number of meters and stanzas. We then tried our own poetry by writing something we fear. Later we combined abstract nouns, adjectives and concrete nouns. Some of our poetry came out weird and really random. For example "Oh love, you crazy taco," or
"Oh friendship you deathly zombie." At the conclusion each teen completed the introductory sentence with a complete story or poem."
