Raven opened the evening with an invocation sonnet, told a story about his first tattoo and more, and described how the haiku tournament was going to go down.
From event description:
“Rojonekku Word Fighting Arts final haikuza tournament of the year for Richmond occurs on 22nd of October, under the theme of PUBLIC DEMONS (as opposed to personal demons, though not necessarily opposed as often our personal demons aid & abet our public demons). Bring 20-some haiku to competitively speak into a mic while people wave flags around and arbitrarily decide winners UNTIL ONLY ONE PERSON IS LEFT AS THE ULTIMATE WINNER. Also there will be some sort of “death match” between Raven Mack and another spirit, perhaps inanimate, plus all the usual nonsense gibberish speaking in tongues you’ve come to know and either love or tacitly tolerate. LAST RICHMOND EVENT OF THE YEAR SO LET’S FILL THE BACK ROOM THE FUCK UP (so that I can convince myself to do this again next year). Any info needed try www.rojonekku.com I guess, any questions, ask here.”
