Ken Arkind was at Hampshire Slam Collective performing with the Spilljoy Ensemble about two or so weeks ago. He's a performance poet from Denver, and I've seen a lot of people do slam well, but he is by far one of the people who has impressed me most in my nearly two years of getting to see the best of the best roll through FPH. I feel spoiled. I don't know how I'll get my spoken word after they hand me my diploma. I guess it depends on where I end up, but anyway, I digress. I bought his chapbook, but I can't share that with everybody who reads this, since I don't even know everybody who reads this. So here's one of his poems, one of my favorites.
