Featuring MICKEY RANDLEMAN!
“Mickey Randleman has been slamming for six years in the Tucson community. She has represented the Ocotillo Slam twice at the Individual World Poetry Slam, and as a team member at three National Poetry Slams (including two epic road trips – Tucson rocks a mix tape). Her poetry/personality was once summarized as, “She will rip out your heart, fold it into a lovely origami snowflake, then shove that down your throat.”
