Wednesday night Spooky Poetry Slam was so much fun!! Thank you @seemedisco for facilitating! Photos by @sidewayseightprojects and @amethyst_noir.photography!!
I didn’t make it past Round 1. But I had a blast! Round 1 was a poem connected to your costume. I wore a dress decorated with bats.
With forelimbs and adapted wings
The only mammal capable of sustained flight.
Bat out of hell
Blind as a bat
The spirit guide who stripped me of my old,
limiting personality and enabled me to step into
a larger, wiser self.
Bat your eyelashes
Bat an eyelid
More than half the species is endangered
Pollination that gifts us with
Bananas, avocados and mangoes
Bat five hundred
Bat for the other side
Bat on a sticky wicket
Pedal to the metal
Or wings to the air
Capable of reaching over 100 miles per hour
Bat the breeze
Bat an eye
Living in bat colonies
With pups who feed on breastmilk
Longevity is their super power
Bat for the other team
We might have matching navels
Is yours an innie or outie?
Bats in the belfry
Able to eat up to 1,200 mosquitos an hour
You’re welcome to dinner at my place anytime, flittermouse
