At the weekly slam poetry competitions hosted by San Antonio’s nationally recognized slam group PuroSlam, free speech is alive and well. Indeed, the group makes no bones about the fact that poets taking the stage can say whatever they want, and the audience is free to, by extension, react however they will. However, at Tuesday’s special event, the “Still Not My President: The Resist Trump Slam,” folks will be required to address the particular topic of the 45th President of the United States. In keeping with the group’s commitment to free speech, participants are free to, despite the event’s title, defend or lambast the current leader of the free world in their performance. How’s that for democratic? So get your (poetic) shit together, summon your courage (especially if you plan to be in the minority praising Trump), and get out there and celebrate the power of words to heal and to engender change.
