"Yes, I grew up here,
The women on the walls,
My examples of feminine,
The spit, and the sweat, and the swearing,
My examples of life."
At Fryeburg Fair Woodsmen's Field Day, we met Jen Michaud, a competitor and a slam poet. She let us tag along with her throughout the day, and even recited for us her poem "I Grew Up Here" from the sidelines of the event.
