April Fools, Fool.



It's officially, WHAT?!?!

This is the real month in which you're supposed to do the 30/30. (30 poems in 30 days) But, eh, I've been there and done that. But of course, poets.org is having a FIELD day with the month this year! (sigh) What do they have planned? Hmmmm. Poem in your pocket day, poem emailed a day, poem on a post it note stick it on your forehead day (i made that one up), and blah, blah, blah. BORING! I've decided, for the next 30 days, I'll put you up on poets you probably aren't up on yet. So be prepared for some slamming youtube poetry, text poems, and your occasional rant from me on a poet.

:-)

My first poet is Jasmine Mans of the Urban Word NYC 2008 Team. They are featured on the new Def Poetry Season featuring the Brave New Voices competition. (Big up BNV Woohoo! I was on the 05' Team, and we won first place. I know how beautiful it is to be on that stage! Okay, back to Jasmine lol....) I saw this live, however, it's just as incredible recorded:
