The Bloomington Poetry Slam’s co-host Andrea Sterling took to the stage in her red one-piece pantsuit with sparkles purposefully laid on her cheekbones and shoulders. The words she spoke were of heartbreak and longing, power and regret. It was a cool Friday evening on Sept. 15, 2023, fall just around the corner.
