Ursula Rucker as alternative to bad poetry

June 5, 2009

So earlier this week, in a bit of creative hissy fit over all the marketing and journalism work I’ve been doing lately and the great but oh-so-business-focused Tweets I’ve been recieving, I decided to send out a poem a day, 5 days a week, to add a little verse into these heavy tech and business conversations.

So far there’s been this great piece from Martin Espada, a poem from Kevin Young’s brilliant “To Repel Ghosts” a collection insired by the paintings of Jean Michel Basquiat, and this spoken word/house anthem below, from 4Hero and Ursula Rucker.  This came out a while back and was one of the 1st pieces that I thought “got it right” when it came to blending beats and spoken word w/o sounding corny as hell.
