Finally! I cannot believe it took me this long to go to poetry night on Coventry. Have heard about it for years. But I always figured:
1. I don’t have time.
2. Why Tuesday night? Don’t you people have to get up and go to work in the morning?!
Low and behold, I went, jammed out to some good music, had a great time and managed to wake up and be productive the next day… Tonight’s performer was Saul Williams. My friends and I couldn’t figure out why this guy looked so familiar. But one visit to IMBD on my iPhone and the mystery was solved.
Yup. He was Lynn’s artsy boyfriend, Sivad on the hit sitcom Girlfriends.
“Intelligence is intuitive
you needn’t learn to love
unless you’ve been taught
to fear and hate.” – Saul Williams
