Today’s poetry movement needs to defer from using musical blends to exploit the true nature: An online interview with Sean freestayfree Stewart
Dupur Mitra: Do you think poetry play role in your society? If yes how and if not why?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: Yes, I believe without a poetic voice, there is no true teaching method to the misunderstood voices of reason. There must be a voice of reason for poverty to speak. A voice for love to speak. A voice of the sum of hatred to speak it’s solution.
Dupur Mitra: Who are your major influences as a poet?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: Deepak Chopra, Tupac Shakur and Langston Hughes
Dupur Mitra: What does being a poet mean to you?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: Being the poet I am, means to me a gift of Heaven to my Earthly being the poet that I am. A gift being brought to existence thru the works of my invocation of the gift in my works and spoken word.
Dupur Mitra: What is poetry?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: Poetry is the beating heart of words unspoken. The art of definition is to be not; until born through the understanding of words.
Dupur Mitra: what are your observations about trending of world poetry?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: I see a new renaissance of expression. This may be the thousand years of peaceful expression being born. Accompanied by rebellious acts, the rebellion of poetry is exposing governmental acts of atrocities and genocide around the world.
Dupur Mitra: If poetry movement can improve the poetry? if yes how, if not why?
Sean freestayfree Stewart: Yes, the entire society needs a release of anger, hate and hurt which can be released throughout spoken word. The best example for this is the recorded performance, “Revolutions Will not be Televised” by Gill Scott Heron and Last Poets
Today’s poetry movement needs to defer from using musical blends to exploit the true nature of it’s meaning and objective. The readers have stopped reading and have begun to listen instead. The direction of meaning is diverted into feeling and unsafe passage into emotion. All things read must become learned by it’s reader. We have lost also, the penmanship of writers who have resorted to technology to victimize poetic nature. I am here to keep the art of poeticism in today’s understanding of modern poetry.
I am honored to have given you a piece of my mind, body and soul Dupur Mitra. May my light be of love unto you & thank you for your greetings.
