Favourite poems from YouTube: Part 2, Rives

Thanks to Miss H, I discovered Rives a couple of years ago. I have been hooked ever since!

    We don’t do a lot of poetry on our website, though we’re hoping to do something with John Kinsella very soon, but I’ve just posted an interview with Jen Hadfield here and a blog post about her here.

    Whoa… that sign language one was outstanding! It’s great to see what other elements a poet could use in their performances.

    I love spoken word.

    here are a few others I tried posting on
    the other spoken word post, but it erased
    it for some reason.

    I did post on the earlier favoutrite poems on you tube, but it seems to have disappeared.

    Since he died in 1966 there aren’t any other youtube video (though I’d be most happy if someone can prove this not to be the case).

    ‘Compliment’ by Rives is my all time favorite. I was super-into the spoken word thing for awhile and now I have no idea what new things are going on with it, boo. Maybe I shall do a little research and do an update on my blog (which I haven’t had the energy or life in me to touch in a month now, sigh.)

    H — a new thing happening in spoken word = Eric Hamilton, aka oldest-boy on deviantART. Check out Procrastination Station tomorrow for a live reading of his… he freaking blows me away.
