Single Onion, # 82, “The taboo of work poetry”

This is the last of the lecture series, readings.  All Canadian serial rights remain with the authors. The Raw Salvage Ltd. pod-cast is by consent. Our purpose is for promotion of poets and the spoken word genera. RAW Salvage Ltd., is an Alberta registered autonomous non-profit company. The spoken-words, prose and poetry that are presented, reflect the individual artists. The production here is for appreciation, meant to be shared

Thank you to Tom, Dymphny,and  Tyler

 Thanks also to the Single Onion for hosting  a brilliant 3 part  lecture series.

 

Hey hears a work poem editorial from RAW Salvage Ltd.

 

 

How’s  this work

 

Someone asked a simple question.

               “Who are you recording this for?”

there was suspicion, in their tone of voice,

 challenge in their actions.

one even took our waiver and tore it up

 in our faces.

 

Aww… they had no need for that paranoia,

 we will not steal or fight with  you, to promote you  reading.

please, if you want, keep your words for your friends and yourself.

keep the  illusion  of success in your mind.

 

“it’s not personal” you declared with a fake hug and cold stare,

 worn words,  old language, self-serving, a little  biased,

RAW Salvage is sympathetic to you providing no worth to yourself

words have no value unless they are read, heard or shared,

we honour  your right to  carry on, unheard, unseen but do not malign us

with your paranoid  thoughts that you have something we’d want

 

  and finally a formalized response to the query  

after a lot of thought and some fear of nasty reprisals

we record for those who  are not here but want to hear

for those who want to share and believe in the right to do so

RAW Salvage Ltd.,

 

As always please down load and enjoy

So here it is with all the confusion hype and strung along words to be measuredly measured. My gawd what a month, lets end the fridgids with this.

 

Thanks to all the open mic readers,

 Garret "MF" Cooper, Danielle Marie, Sasha Semenoff, Liam Askin, and Erin Dingle.

 Thanks also to Kirk Miles for sacrificing his talent and also to Terry and Esau for hosting.

There were alot of sons at this slam, williamson, thorson, Macpherson,  Simpson,  so if they have become transposed to any extent let us know.

We will correct this as always now

 A very simple way to spend an hour on a snowed in cold ice filled day. Our Feb 23 was forbiddingly not nice.

So join us over the net sharing words and a couple of prose and a poem or two in no special order.
