i believe this poetry reading by benjamin zephaniah was the first poetry reading i've ever attended. i'll admit that i was there to shoot some pictures as much as i was interested to see what kind of event a poetry reading is like.

especially when the kind of poetry being read is dub poetry.


at the end of it, i must say that i came away with a rather positive feeling about poetry readings. the three poets who read/recited their works (and also the informative and entertaining shadow play by the kg berembang children) renewed my interest in witty wordplay, although i don't think i'll be able to support myself with poetry.

my regrets?

i didn't get to sit upfront, but that's the photographer in me talking.

and where were the pretty girls?!!!

hmm, i guess dub poetry just ain't their thing.
