    Default Return of Caco's Poetry Lounge

    i've decided to bring this back. Now that we can show clips on the new board I think I'll mostly post clips of people performing.

    This doesn't really go well for mother's day, it's more of a piece for father's day, but w/e. Without anymore delay, the spoken word performer that I look to as a mentor Taalam Acey performing Metaphysix

    enjoy

    A couple of guys came into my comparative culture class and did some spoken word, they are called the Braxes. I'm usually not favorable to stuff like that but i really was intrigued to spoken word. Cool vid caco.

    Selected very tasteful poems by Richard Brautigan.

    HORSE CHILD BREAKFAST

    Horse child breakfast
    what are you doing to me?
    with your long blonde legs?
    with your long blonde face?
    with your long blonde hair?
    with your perfect blonde ass?

    I swear I’ll never be the
    same again!

    Horse child breakfast,
    what you’re doing to me,
    I want done forever.
    ----------------------------------------
    XEROX CANDY BAR

    Ah,
    you’re just a copy
    of all the candy bars
    I’ve ever eaten.
    ----------------------------------------
    DECEMBER 30

    At 1:03 in the morning a fart
    smells like a marriage between
    an avocado and a fish head.

    I have to get out of bed
    to write this down without
    My glasses on.
    ----------------------------------------
    I FEEL HORRIBLE. SHE DOESN’T

    I feel horrible. She doesn’t
    Love me and I wander around
    The house like a sewing machine
    That’s just finished sewing
    A turd to a garbage can lid.
    ---------------------------------
    MILK FOR THE DUCK

    ZAP!
    Unlaid / 20 days

    My sexual image
    Isn’t worth a shit.

    If I were dead
    I couldn’t attract
    A female fly.
    -----------------------------------
    FLOWERS FOR THOSE YOU LOVE

    Butcher, baker, candlestick maker,
    anybody can get VD,
    including those you love.

    Please see a doctor
    if you think you've got it.

    You'll feel better afterwards
    and so will those you love.

    Pretty much. I like "Flowers for those you love" best. It's like a public service poem.

    This is probably my second favorite poem of all time, given to me by my Pops who said he carried a copy of it in his wallet for many years as a young man, which indicates a seriously fucked-up view of the world.

    To A Baby Born Without Limbs

    This is just to show you whose boss around here.
    It’ll keep you on your toes, so to speak,
    Make you put your best foot forward, so to speak,
    And give you something to turn your hand to, so to speak.
    You can face up to it like a man,
    Or snivvle and blubber like a baby.
    That’s up to you. Nothing to do with Me.
    If you take it in the right spirit,
    You can have a bloody marvelous life,
    With the great rewards courage brings,
    And the beauty of accepting your LOT.
    And think how much good it’ll do your Mum and Dad,
    And your Grans and Gramps and the rest of the shower,
    To be stopped being complacent.
    Make sure they baptise you, though,
    In case some murdering bastard
    Decides to put you away quick,
    Which would send you straight to LIMB-O, ha ha ha.
    But just a word in your ear, if you’ve got one.
    Mind you DO take this in the right spirit,
    And keep a civil tongue in your head about Me.
    Because if you DON’T,
    I’ve got plenty of other stuff up My sleeve,
    Such as Leukemia and polio,
    (Which incidentally your welcome to any time,
    Whatever spirit you take this in.)
    I’ve given you one love-pat, right?
    You don’t want another.
    So watch it, Jack.

    EDIT: If not obvious, this poem is written in the voice of God, speaking to a baby born without limbs, natch. Written by Kingsley Amis, as part of the novel The Anti-Death League. Misspellings intentional on his part.

    so I just found out Yellow Rage is performing tonight where I'm performing....I'm very interested to see how they are live again. I havent seen them for over 3 years and all they did was poems like the one I'm about to show you now. I hope they actually express their anger on something else

    "what do you know about [saki/ghandi/geisha girls/great wall/demilitarized zones/etc.]?

    So a couple of 21-year old asian-americans know all of these things? Having an ancestor born somewhere in asia makes you a pan-asian expert?

    They're like one-dimensional Margaret Cho's without a sense of humor.

    I love that she's bragging that it took her 20 years to learn chinese.
    I also love that she fucked up saying "my tongue's got more skills than yours"

    Poetry (from the Greek "ποίησις", poiesis, a "making" or "creating") is a form of art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its ostensible meaning. Poetry may be written independently, as discrete poems, or may occur in conjunction with other arts, as in poetic drama, hymns or lyrics.
