Erotica Poetry Slam

Last night was the Erotic Poetry Slam down at Kieran's Irish Pub. Jack and I went down to see Irish-Girl perform (is 'perform' the proper term for participation in a slam?) as we were genuinely interested and have known Irish-Girl through her blog but had never met her in person. I must say, I was impressed with the poetry. Some was just brilliant, some just funny, and one was just, well, painfully bad (not Irish-Girl's, just to clarify). I've read some of IG's stuff online but hearing her deliver it makes it all that much better. Seriously. The author's performance of the piece really makes it and I recommend you attend a slam. I'm hooked. By the way, she got in the top five. I would have put her in the top three. And I'm not just pandering 'cuz I know she'll eventually read this...

'perform' is completely proper. some people also use 'slam' as a verb, but in your case you'd already used the word slam earlier in the sentence. so perform it is.

i'm glad you guys came down; it's always a bit nerve-wracking when someone new comes to a slam. i feel personally responsible if they hate it, so I'm glad you both enjoyed yourselves.

and thank you for the glowing review!
