“VIBES TO TOUCH”
I read a controversial yet sweet poem to a crowd of Brooklynites just a few nights ago on Saturday, September 10th at an open mic called VIBES TO TOUCH held at the TBD lounge in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Although the hosts, Wiseguy and Gaston Thomas, introduced me as a Performing Artist / House Singer because that’s what I am, I’ve never recited one of my poems before – which for me, was exploring new territory.
|House Singer & Spoken Word Artist, Jasmine Clemente|
The first spoken word poet to go up was, Versatile, who shared a dark, urban tale in a poetic fashion, expressing raw emotion with passion and pain. Then, immediately after her performance is when I was called to the stage. (Well, not a real stage; it was the center of the lounge area complete with a tall, evergreen floor plant) All eyes were on me as I began to read the first few lines of my poem about Children. I knew there had to be a few parents in the room. (It was a grown & sexy crowd) And since I had gained everyone’s attention by having complete silence in the room, I knew the audience hung onto my every word until I left them with a cliff hanger – perhaps for them to either fly away a new perspective on how we view our children, or fall back into the reality they might’ve known prior to hearing my words. The purpose of my piece was to inspire people even more than they already are by our precious little jewels who hold the future in their hands.
In addition to the many other poets who were featured after me, there was also an acoustic guitar singer named, Joshua Torrez, who rocked a great performance, especially after singing, “It’s A Man’s World”, by James Brown. He got everyone’s attention after rocking that jam, not to mention the females who jumped out of their seats while singing along, “But it would be nothing, nothing, without a woman or a girl.” Of course! I clapped and whistled!
|Art Work Created by Michelle Merin|
Art work was also displayed all over the lounge, adding an extra flare of creative zest to the scene. Above is a picture of one of my favorite features of the night which was created by Michelle Merin. If you look closely, beside the bird is a message embedded inside of the heart: LOOK STRAIGHT. NOT DOWN AND NEVER BACK.
