Every Friday this April, I am going to feature an original work here for your reading pleasure. Throw rotted fruit, sing praises, lemme know you just don’t get it, but do, please, have an experience. If you borrow the work, be polite and cite!
Today’s National Poetry Month contribution is the full poem featured during January’s Fantastic Ekphrastic! This is a performance piece – a poem intended to be spoken and performed as opposed to reading across a page. I do this format to emphasize the passion of the piece. Weird? Good! I’m purposely taking you out of your comfort zone. 😀
1) You must first listen to this song. The beat sets the tempo of the poem; if you just start reading, it’s gonna be confusing! So, about the 30 second mark, you should feel yourself “lifting”…
2) Once lifted, you can start reading the poem to the beat OR
Listen to the beat in entirety, then go in on the poem. I’ve purposely made it legible in five minutes to compliment the track.
3) Following the beat of the song, you’ll be able to discern three different vignettes which cumulatively is ArcAngel. Ready?
GO! [Remember, DeOrro’s Five Hours first…]
