I love the yawp

I’ve been coming to the monthly yawp at 61 Local for 5 years. It’s great and the yawpcast is so much fun. When I read a great poem, which is all the time, I tell my friends to check it out and then they tell me how much they loved it but they also listen to the other great poets at the open mic. So good.
