English (the love story)

Poet Slayton Goodman, 17, is a junior at Kenwood Academy and competed in Louder Than a Bomb 2011 as a member of team Epic Sound representing his high school.

English (the love story) is a piece about falling in love with the English personification, as Slayton describes it.

Though everyone knows the points are not the point – the point is the poetry – congratulations to Kenwood Academy’s Epic Sound, who was chosen as one the four Teams advancing to the Final round of the 2011 competition which celebrated over 600 young writers.
