Local poets battled it out onstage at Merge to become the first Poetry Slam champion for Wordy Wednesday hosted by Brandon Williamson. Audience members got to take part in the judging of these poets and their witty rhymes that incorporated meaning and comedy. Personally, I've never been to a Poetry Slam; as a matter of fact, I wasn't even sure what one was, but I found myself both entertained and enlightened -- not a bad combination for a rainy Wednesday night.
