Live Poetry, Sans Audience

Sometimes it can be nice to perform or listen to a piece in an unnatural environment; you get to feel new things in it. Here are two pieces that I perform all the time, taken out of the slam/theater/club context and shot simply. For me, the most revealing thing about these is that they're both four minutes long, and that when in front of a big crowd, I speed them up. I like this pace, though, so it'll be something to work on.

Thanks to Amani Media-- check out her website for a ton of other stuff.

Wow, that really altered the tone and essence of the poems. I really enjoyed that. It was like listening to a completely new piece for the first time.
