Thanks for the likes, Becky. Looking forward to digging into your work. Reading your bio, I understand how difficult it is to present slam poetry on the page. On the page, lines gotta break somewhere, though sometimes those breaks are at odds with the rhythm of the voice. That is why I always read poetry aloud, ignoring the breaks. Doing so allows one to truly hear the voice of the poet.

Thanks for the link that you put on the "Royal Mint" blog.
It seems to me personally a case of "IF the spirit is willing..." for a successful outcome.

Hello Becky. I had to write to tell you just how much I admire and like "There's a poem". The music of the poem is wonderful and the rhythm and metre are perfect. We all need to read between the lines of people's lives: not many adults escape unscathed and I certainly need to listen more closely both to what people say and what they don't say.


somewhere in your wine-soaked words
A heart-felt message can be heard

Best wishes. Keep writing, you are talented.

Hi Becky! Thank you for your nice words about my poem! I like your sample as well!
And I, too, love the idea of expressing oneself in a language other than their native one! For the same reason I like learning foreign languages! So far I know English, French and Turkish plus my mother language! I think it's fascinating to be able to see the world through eyes other than you own, to be able to communicate directly with people fron entirely different cultures. And let's face it, English is "linua franca", a universal language! It brings people who know it together! Keep slamming!

Becky, solidarite! I know how you feel! English is not my mother language either but I love it so much! I can't help it! It's the tongue of my heart! I write and think and read in it as much as I can! Kudos for putting your work out there! ?

Thanks for taking notice on the collaboration Becky.

To answer your questions, the collaboration was easy, went well, and I hope to do it again sometime. I actually wrote a follow-up verse for another poem called "Megalomania MV", and was just waiting for Ferris to have time so he could finish his verse.

We both wrote our verses separately, and then sent each other the verses so we could see it all together as one. From there I simply posted it after editing for grammar and mistakes.

If you would like to write a verse for it or another one so we could put it up, feel free to. Anything you come up with would be sufficient. If not, no worries!

Thank you so much Frances Macaulay Forde for your kind words – they really mean so much to me, especially as I am very new to putting myself “out there” poetically online. You may be amused to know this sample poem (which does need a title, now you mention it) actually exists in 2 versions – the original is much freer in its rhythm and rhyming scheme, but somehow I couldn’t leave the text alone until I’d got the pattern to match in every verse.

Regarding describing myself as a slam poet – I hadn’t considered the label as a restriction as such, but I have to say I chose this particular poem to post as a sample because it is one I consider to be closer to “page poetry” than “slam poetry”. The relationship between these art forms fascinates me. I guess a lot of poetry (although not all) can be successfully presented in oral form, and can benefit from being recited well, but for me slam poetry really needs to be performed to be fully what it is. Page poetry can make paper sing, but a lot of slam poetry loses something when restricted to written form. I have always tinkered with words, but my discovery of the slam scene allowed me to at last find my writing voice, and to also get my adrenalin fix from the performance “buzz”. Now I am keen to explore other poetic forms too. Unfortunately living in a non-anglophone country limits my opportunities for exchange and for getting some measure of the success of my writing (and performances). So I was overjoyed to find this website!

Thank you again, I look forward to exchanging further!

Nice to 'meet' you Becky Who.
I absolutely loved every considered and carefully placed word of your sample poem which I presume is entitled 'There's a poem...'
I will certainly make sure I read everything you post, so looking forward to many more from you.

IMHO the words of this poem demonstrate a heightened poetic ability but you restrict the perception of your talent - you are so much more than a 'slam' poet!
