I Miss Beat Poetry

April 29, 2009

I mean I know this is a joke and I know that beat poetry has evolved into slam poetry, but i still miss it. There is something about the calmness to beat poetry that is lost in the yelling and angst that is in slam poetry. I think we need to bring some of that back so that we can have poetry be about the words and not just the volume.

  1. good evening…

    I am very hesitant to publish or “keep it” on my site. What is your opinion? Does it have a “tone or lyric”?
