Here is Lady K’s 84 year old Grandmother reading at her first ever open mic in this video John Burroughs aka Jesus Crisis posted on YouTube at Grandma Poesy – 84 Yr Old Open-Mic Poetry Virgin

Granny’s reading her own poetry from a book she handmade herself.

Burroughs frequently tapes poetry readings but wasn’t recording this evening until granny came up and after her first poem whipped out his camera.

We go to a lot of readings and they eventually develop a miasmic sameness — there are 2 or 3 featured readers plus a plethora of poets for open mic, and frequently we’ve all heard each other countless times through the years; but grandma captivated all the hardened veterans and made it one of those evenings that make poetry worthwhile.
