Eight more poets granted immunity in competition

Ten poets created poems from the theme “Mysteries of Harris Burdick” and eight of them survived the double elimination at Last Poet Standing Feb 21.

Steven Duncan, a sophomore studying general science, won immunity with his poem written from a bird’s perspective.

Each poet received a single picture from “The Mysteries of Harris Burdick”, a picture book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, and had to create a poem based on that picture.

“I know a lot of people weren’t happy with the prompt they got, but the picture I got was my favorite in the whole book, so I was happy,” said Anna May, a sophomore studying English.

May said she started creating her poem when she imagined the picture.

“[Afterward] it just came to me that I wanted to write out what truth meant in relation to the picture.”

Garrett Sherwood, a BYU-Idaho alumnus, who attended this round of the show was the winner of Last Poet Standing two years ago.

After the contestants finished, Sherwood read a few of the poems that he has created over the years.

The poets’ theme for next week is “Brand New Serheroes.”
