i had not delved into the world of spoken-word poetry until very recently, when a friend shared this with me.
Anis Mojgani has won piles of spoken word and literary awards. he captured me with this, and i have come to love his work intensely. he has a purity that is rare and beautiful, and he makes himself almost unbearably real. he seems to be noting but a divine invitation. an open door. a dropped key.
watch him here. watch his eyes and the smiling cast of his mouth as he speaks. watch his hands, how they speak. watch him on his toes, alive with the beauty of his vision. hear his tone, his voice that wants all the words to rush out over the vocal instruments and through his teeth to your individual heart.
take this, today.
