The slammy poet

I never real­ly got into poe­try slam so far. I always sound­ed too unli­tera­ry to me. I am real­ly used to books and I clear­ly attri­bu­te to mys­elf to have some kin­de of tas­te in lite­ra­tu­re, which is qui­te nor­mal being con­fron­ted with tho­se clas­sics. Sla­me poe­try always see­med to igno­re tho­se achie­ve­ments, the audi­ence sel­dom gives the impres­son of being inte­rested in deeper things. But for many this kind of sub­jec­tive dis­tinc­tion is wrong. They refer to the sub­jec­tive tas­te wher­ein ever­yo­ne is the one to judge.

Doing so we have to admit poe­try slam on sta­ge is amu­sing and it often igni­tes a spark to lis­teners:


But there’s some dan­ger. Some­ti­mes that spark lits a fire and lis­teners get to the point whe­re they want to inter­pret things out of their peri­phe­ry in meta­pho­ri­cal terms.


Keep tho­se guys off the sta­ge!
