Robert Archambeau wrote that when the powerful control the means to silence the oppressed, “one can still take up a pen and write poems that say things unpalatable to the powers that be.”
Poetry offers a voice to the voiceless. It shakes things up. If you’ve ever written poetry as part of your personal revolution, if it’s been your scream in the night, your quiet resistance, your call to action — come and share with us.
Tomorrow night, March 28, at Java Jolt at 7pm. Open mic signup starts at 6:30. Come read your own poetry, your favorite piece, or one of the works of revolutionary poetry we’re bringing with us.
