Photos by Ma'atology Therfe's promoter Mocha Latte introducing herself to the crowd during her long running monthly poetry showcase GOT LYRICS (with DJ Reminise in the background) that was held at Exo.
One of the first poets to perform was Lisa Marie from Cincinnati

STL staple Xplicit rousing the crowd with his animated swag.
The ladies in the crowd were all up in his poems on relationships.

Poet X Blu Reign got on the mic speaking that seductiveness.
Reign didnt hold her tongue when it came to what she was speaking on!
In the crowd was MPAC's Mo Spoon and his lady Monica.

After the break was poet Blackstone who was more Bill Cosbyish with his storytelling type of delivery
He also had a knack of metaphor and allusion to his pieces.
NOTE: Although the crowd was very small and intimate, the talent was big and plenty!
