The second night of the 2009 Kinetic Poetics Project! Featuring Buddy Wakefield--exuberant son of a guitar repair woman, prone to playing marbles in trees, he is one not afraid to live life for a living.
In a culture that encourages community through television, social life through computers, talk through cell phones, we see necessity in direct, unmediated, communication. There are no screens between you and the poet. There are no buttons to click. This is the real deal—people gathering together to share their stories. This is the modern incarnation of the oral tradition. In the face of a culture that seeks to turn life into a commodity, this is the sustenance and fostering of our raw, honest humanity.
