Poetry

Must ALL poets of a younger age over come lack of perspective with Shatner-esqe over acting? Performance and slam were once the new hot thing, now it seems to be almost the only thing. People miss the words for the act. Mesmerized by the movement of the body, inflections of volume change, and Quixotic topics, watchers feel they are reveling in the deep. But is it just an act, all participation in self important delusion? Yes, some performance is connective and lead to a greater understanding. But, much of it seems as titillating as a teen idol’s dancing video, lacking of musical, lyrical, or dancing ability. Is it all just T and A? Spit and Vigor? All an attempt to prove ourselves? Or can we learn to temper with the pleasure of a simple reading or words.
