    A great big shout out to The Dekalb Market for allowing us to host the 2012 UPS: NY Edition Poetry Slam Competition last night. The setting was a small intimate one of engaging and dynamic poets battling through explosive expressions leaving only one standing as the champ. She is none other than Olukemi A Taiwo, a London native who is completing her year long internship with JPMorgan Chase here in the states. Thank you Dekalb Market! Thank you Gabo and Urban Space for another successful event. We definitely hate to see you go! Keep us posted on the location of the next venue! Poetry Provokes!
