sarah writes some rhymes

last night i went out to daila for my first ever Corner Prophets event. after a few poets went up to perform, mobius lead us in an exercise in which he gave us three key words and a topic (orange, mediocre, sullen, and immigration) and each person then wrote something which he or she then performed. everyone had a great time chilling out, creating art, and supporting each other. check out the site to see the rhymes we made up.
