The Me Anything- The Klute Edition 10 months 6 days ago #68

The Klute is the most recognizable voice from Arizona on poetry slam’s national stage. He grew up along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on Palm Beach, Florida where he cultivated a love of sharks to become an activist for their preservation through the medium of spoken word, and has had the privilege of sharing the waves with those fantastic fish, from the great whites of Isla Guadalupe, Mexico to the reef sharks of Egypt’s Red Sea coast. He has represented the cities of Mesa, Phoenix, and Sedona at the National Poetry Slam 10 times between 2002 and 2014 and has opened for spoken word superstars such as Saul Williams and Amber Tamblyn and has been the featured performer in such legendary venues as Vancouver’s Cafe Deux Soliels and New York City’s Bowery Poetry Cafe.

If you could pick the one poem to introduce people to you as a performance poet, what would that poem be? Feel free to link to a YT or what have you.

The Me Anything- The Klute Edition 10 months 6 days ago #71

I think my favorite poem to use as an introduction is called "Fun for the Whole Family", but most people know it as the "Arizona" poem.

I generally use it after I introduce myself, and say something like "the best way to learn about someone is to learn about where they're from", and then I'll just launch into the poem.

It's funny, I like to think it's smart, and it's definitely high energy. If you don't like me or are at least interested in what I'm doing after I wrap the poem up, then you best move on - I'm probably not for you.
