All Access

This is how
We celebrate life
Open mic
Open veins
Blood spills over on the floor
Maybe saving lives


This is my 5th installment for National Poetry month. I am short one entry. Maybe one of these Sundays, I’ll write two. This is a shadorma. I am going to run out of short forms and be left with all of the long ones. All Access is the name of the open mic I host on Thursday nights. This is what we do.


Wayne Bowerman is a writer, poet and spoken word artist hailing from Grand Rapids Michigan. His writing is evocative and challenging while also encouraging to anyone who is going through any sort of struggle. If you are in the Grand Rapids area, you can catch him around town at various open mic shows and every Thursday night at Mayan Buzz Cafe where he hosts All Access Open Mic from 8-10pm.
