Poetri doing dating myself def poetry
Not since Ntozake Shange's For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf has a poem like that been on the stage.However, Marc Smith, the founder of the Poetry Slam movement, is more critical of the program.
Only difference is this is one of those real love type loves.
I'm probably the only person to be on there who hasn't slammed.
And I think most people on Def Poetry have won slams or done well in slams.
And, all of them, except the special guest stars, the celebrities, are writing slam poems and performing slam poems on Def Poetry, so to me, Def Poetry is still extremely slam-informed, and I think it will probably always be.
What they say about Def Poetry is that it wants to bring an urban feel.
