There’s something about coffeehouses that brings people together besides the free wifi.  At Java Monkey in Decatur it seems to be the familiar faces and – on Sunday evenings at least – the amateur, uncensored poetry. 

In this Atlanta Sound we meet Kodac Harrison, the organizer of the coffeehouse's weekly open mic poetry night. He has been hosting the event since it began back in 2001.
