Rhyme and reason 

A little over a year ago, Luke Cissell began the twice-monthly open-mic poetry event Hear Here. The Colorado Springs native designed the forum to stray away from poetry in bars and clubs and to create a specific, all-ages environment for exhibition and rapport: "Focus on doing you, and find your inner voice and cultivate that," he says. "It's your own voice, your own story."
