Slam Me Your Poetry

My favorite poet’s, Rives

Meet the Artist- Poetry reading

Rating: 5 stars and much more


I came to Meet the Artist a few months ago, expecting to hear a middle age man talk about the art of poetry writing, but I got four amazing poets in return. The experience is so powerful that I am inspired to participate in a writer’s retreat for my next summer.

The poems ranges from the bitting off of a nipple to inspirational figures to the Iraq War to drug use and hand-me-down Halloween costumes. It was not only the content that got me so mesmerized, it also the poets’ voices that got me so intrigued. Listening to them makes me scare to read my own poetry; comparing to these professionals, I don’t slam my poems, I simply put them on the table.

Side note: I think you should check out my favorite contemporary poet: Rives.

    I love rude, crude people.

    They’re the most honest, down-to-earth folk you’ll ever find :D.

    I liked the poets during the meet the artists too. Their poems were very interesting and I liked how they read their poems. It really shows how they want others to interpret it.

    Rives is one of the rudest, most crude people I think this world has.
