One Hundred Words on the TWELVE NOVEMBER CANBERRA AUSTRALIAN POETRY SLAM FINAL

Poets from the Canberra BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! and Front Slam filled the air with words Friday night at Smiths Alternative Bookshop. They came to sock it out to represent their Slams at the Australian Poetry Slam National Final. CJ Huet stole the audience with the Underbelly of the Can as Raphael Kabo gunned down Ned Kelly; both narrowly beat Jack-in-the-Box Will Small and Sledge-Hammer Josh Inmania. The Phoenix Pub BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! will take pride in taunting that Front Slam for the next year, both finalists came from BAD!SLAM! nights of heckling, applause, general yelling, the occasional anarchist riot, cider, whiskey, beer, and much poetry.
