THE RE-SPIRITUALIZATION OF JAZZ AND POETRY

Reformation of the jazz language
A channel-er
A medium dweller
Some people write poetry
Some people live poetry
There’s always an audience
Fundamental or unstructured
A friend asks how do you write or express what you think
I always say don’t try
Or don’t think about
Or to a salesman this morning
I thought of saying
Write like a resume for a job
But not selling yourself but your ideals
Poetry is the condensed universal jazz of literature
A potent portrait a swift vehicle
Or long lyrical epics
It is a chameleon
And can be any form
Just like jazz
Also everyone has their own flavor
A style of dress is an external poetry without words
What can a real critique be?
How can ones thoughts measure to more than another’s
What are your influences?
Poetry has been my consciousness since the age of 18
And I wonder has rap contaminated jazz and also poetry
Turning it into mainstream over the top pop culture social commentary
But who cannot imitate their influences
I can only admire other poets successful or unsuccessful
Cause their words flow in a way mine would never
I also am disappointed at the spirit the planet is operating with
Kudos to the poets or better yet creators that are too heavy and risky
Humble in your anachronistic solitude
Poetry isn’t meant to be stomached in one lifetime
And if you are an unnoticed poet you have not failed
All experience can only be experience only be truly be experienced by the experience
So to you poetry
Good try translating
What is and was really in your head
And to have that filtered through
Another’s interpretation
