  1. Last night was amazing. Essence was swimming in poetry last night. It was indeed amazing. Thomas Fucaloro "put it down" as only he can. DJ Eliel's poem about Joleen was amazingly crafted and humorous. Ngoma, ahh, like no other. Man, all of the poets rained science last night. Patricia Smith put icing on the cake so sweet, I broke out the Orajel. Happy Anniversary Inspired Word.
