    Al kicks off the episode with a personal story, about being at a large poetry gathering in a small Southern town, Americus, Georgia.  Americus wasn't exactly ready for a big group of diverse poets.  In between the friction between Letson and a sheriff, both of them learn the power of words.

    Then, we hear a poem by slam poet and Kevin  Burke. In "Day Two," Kevin reflects on his time working as a substitute teacher and wanting the kids to stand up for something important.
