The Holloway Series in Poetry - Brenda Coultas and Wayde Compton
Located at Wrigley Field (in Chicago, Illinois) Janet Kuypers read poetry in an effort to get poetry out into the streets for the Chicago 2015 Poetry Bomb — too often writers read their work at poetry open mics and features, but things poetic can be seen everywhere in the world… This is why in this repeating annual venture, poets go out somewhere where people usually don’ read poetry, to perform it for people that are otherwise going about other business).
Fitterman extrapolates found language, viz – language without expression, edited via inter net ads or TV soaps etc., words that plagiarize without copyright, together with those few of his own, that provide a poetic dimension to a world cast in its urbanity. In his epic poem Metropolis, we see here at Artvilla’s Poetry Videos, excerpts from Sprawl, exactly that. The subject matter of consumerist urban landscapes, the mall, through found language, as monotonous, as the experience itself, but striking, even humorous in its take on popular culture raising the low brow to a level of highbrow.
