For some reason this stuff seems to be on my mind. The other day i wrote a poem called ‘Whiteness’ which you can read over here. And i have a piece that i wrote when i was helping out with an exam the other day while waiting for my learner to write her paper. Which i haven’t looked at again, but similar theme.
And then i was working on this piece. i would love to Spoken Word if ‘Spoken Word’ is the verb meaning to be able to ‘Spoken Word’. But let’s face it, the Improv word vomits i do tend to be better in the moment than the words i try to craft and create. So i need a lot of work.
But it’s a start, and if i’m ever going to get better then i guess i just need to go for it. So i hope you will be gentle. Although i would love to hear your brutally honest thoughts and response to this piece [well, some of you].
It’s called ‘I don’t hate my skin’ and is a Brett Fish original:
