Hey, I have recently started listening to this type of poetry due to the strong emotions and images stirred by these excellent writers/readers. I am not exactly sure what to call this type of poetry though… hope I got close. My interest kind of got started by Blair Underwood in the movie Full Frontal… then I recently downloaded a song by Lauryn Hill called Adam lives in Theory, which I thought would be a really good poem to read out loud like that.
Anyway, to the POINT! I need some hints on what to look for. Who or what do you like in this genre? Anything I can download or buy? Know of any good poetry readings in KC? Why do you like this style of poetry?
Thanks for your help.
