It takes place at a Wednesday-night Bible study in a church, and Nelson brings to life the eight people who have come there for some reason. There's Marquisha, a teenage girl who is HIV-positive and Sean, who Nelson says is an "urban teenager, drug dealer at times, but he's terribly misunderstood because he's incredibly smart" that grew out of her poem "No Motivation." Mo is a blind, gay church musician. David is a married man who is living on the down-low. There's Joey, a "backwards redneck white boy," she explains, "who beat his wife until she shot him." There's an overzealous female pastor. And then there's Michelle, a version of herself, and also LOVE the Poet, who is hosting a poetry event that is taking place on the same evening.
