And in spite of knowing this/ In spite of the absurdity of it all/ You let yourself fall
Break me into numbers and spirals, and blood and flesh make me all that I don't wish to be.
On a Thursday, I went back home, and I took a walk./ On the sidewalk, I saw a splash of maroon on a grey block.
Slam poetry nights returned for its 5th installment on Thursday, January 2023, at the first day of Dhaka Lit Fest 2023 at Nazrul Mancha, Bangla Academy.
The most moving part about these poetry sessions is the conversations.
Returning for its 4th instalment, December's Slam Poetry Nights was different in several ways.
SHOUT and Daily Star Books jointly organise the Slam Poetry Nights once every month to offer a platform for conversations on art, personal freedom, and the issues urgent to the country’s people, all through the lens of poetry.
The December session arrives on Friday, December 2, at the Gulshan Paara Utshab at 3:00-3:45 PM.
