Beau Sia, Slam Poet Extraordinaire

Beau Sia is a slam poetry contestant. In 1998, he put out the slam poetry album on CD, Attack! Go! Go!

It was through Sia that 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Poetry winner, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz got interested in slam poetry.

Slam poetry is what I'd call a flyting "martini." Its insults could easily result from clever tricks of the tongue. Yet no one would believe just they've been subject to even one insult.

In some ways, even slam poets would beg to differ, for slam poetry reminds me of my potential greatness were it not for me being a total fanboy of the greatness of the Buddha.
