– I need to write something. I’ll go see what’s happening on the poetry slam stage.

Mr Ambush
How was it?

Mrs Who
Norway’s team got it buzzing politically and there was another team that had some great existential points. The feminist movement is strong yet I found some of the statements too hateful of the “opposite” side not considering their own double standards.

Mr Ambush
Did you enjoy being a judge?

Mrs Who
In one sense yes, in another no. I felt that the point system wasn’t doing the creators justice and the sacrificial speakers were too far from the rest of the poets standards. It made the point of reference wonky.

Mr Ambush
Fair enough. Was it your arena?

No. The environment was too competitive which made it seem hostile. Beats the bigger picture of being in total flow. There’s more sound where we’re at. I want to be there for the noise.
