Truly fine poetry must be read aloud. A good poem does not allow itself to be read in a low voice or silently. If we can read it silently, it is not a valid poem: a poem demands pronunciation. Poetry always remembers that it was an oral art before it was a written art. It remembers that it was first song. ―
I came up empty on google so I started through spoken word poetry on you tube. Again, great poetry but nothing for my audience. How could no one have ever made a poem for two voices that was aimed at me and my peers in the poetry world? Seriously, where was all the poetry being hidden?
Finally I came across this little gem. By the way, we enjoyed our last class and watched several spoken word poems and we also read aloud our own poems. We watched and talked about this poem for two voices. I hope you enjoy it too. And if you know of any other poetry for two voices--please comment below. I would love to know about it.
