a picture says a thousand words. imagine what that says for spoken verse…
It’s a Tuesday evening at Studio281 in Atlanta. Around 8 pm folks start to trickle in. They mingle and drink happily as the crew from Black on Black Rhyme Atlanta prepare the, typically, Jazz setting for it role tonight as a house of poetic verse. Its a special night because several poets have travelled all the way from the Black on Black Rhyme home of Tallahassee FL to perform. After the night’s performance, spoken verse poets from both cities will head to Knoxville TN for a special event there, but on this night … we are the fortunate audience of their creatively impassioned recitations.
“a picture is worth a thousand words” … maybe. I love the images I captured and maybe a picture is worth a thousand words. But it pales in comparison to the performance of this troupe. You have to be there. You have to experience it. These impressions are just a taste.
