Verses and Flow: Part 1
Lexus is in its fourth season of sponsoring a spoken-word show called Verses and Flow. I suppose it's an effort to make Lexus a cool and desirable brand among a young black urban audience. In any case, it's a terrific showcase for slam and spoken-word poets. We had the pleasure and privilege of being invited to attend the taping (spoiler alert: No one in our party was in the demographic. We were variously, too old, too white, or both. Didn't matter). What a show! What excellent poets!
