The Kindergarten Teacher

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-iq4w8-f1ea43

Iambic Poetry Podcast present Reel Poetry

Reel Poetry reviews the 2018 independent film: The Kindergarten Teacher.

This movie definitely creeped out the reviewers. The poems done by Ocean Vuong(I spelled it wrong during the review) were spectacular but did they help or hurt the film. Maggie Gyllenhaal gave a performance that still haunt the reviewers.

May Day 2020

I am excited that May is here but Co-vid has made me look at my days I like.

Star Wars Day

May the fourth be with you all. I am shock how the day is flowing and the night is creeping upon us. Since, I would normally celebrate hump day today, it feels exciting to have extra reason to celebrate. Today is Star Wars Day. So, now, you and your kids can wear your Star Wars apparel without celebrating halloween or conventions. It makes me wonder how many bosses will dress like Darth Vader to work and walk around in the office halls. Talk about superiority complex.

Cinco de Mayo

I really need to understand the history of Cinco de Mayo because it is not celebrated the right way. Americans misunderstanding has become a stereotypical drinking celebration like St. Patrick day.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is upon us. I find it hard to celebrate it since I live so far from my mother. But I do have children and their mothers are wonderful in their own right. So, I have to pay attention to them and make it enjoyable.

Blaster (Boombox Transformer) (Day 17)

More than meet the eye

A robot in disguise

Rock a party

No bacardi

Kicking out bad guys

Show tunes on sand dunes 

Across the moon

Shockwave’s counterwave

give him some room

See the crowd in shock 

He’s a boom box.  

Cybertron Casey Kasem 

Trashes laserbeak’s swank box

Here’s a thought 

who’s fresh to def.

Recording Megatron quotes

From his bad breath 

An autobot 

who has no wheels 

But play the wheels of steel

Conducting music at will

Feel intensity 

From all frequencies

Instantly 

Turn pin drops

To buckshot

Boom!

Viciously

Chorus:

If the music is rocking,

I’m rolling (3x)

His tape squad come correct 

Steeljaw, Ramhorn, Rewind, and Eject

See the threat

Get Soundwave on the phone 

With his tape crew 

Let’s choose a war zone

Optimus Prime knows

His value to the fold

The data that he hold

What else can be exposed

Do y’all know about Jazz

Their blues Brothers

Playing tunes on the streets

Watch him burn rubber

Terra communication 

That rocks the nations

From beach boys to Snoop Dogg

A good vibrations

A fan favorite 

From show’s past

Died with Soundwave 

Reformed as Twincast

Took the role of leadership 

hard to master

Music is my shit

Your man, Blaster

Chorus:

My Interview

I am excited to see an interview done on me. Thank you to Izzy Lala for asking and writing the article. It was an amazing experience because it was a chance to see someone else’s point of view of me.

Plus, I started to understand the image that I projected publicly. Since being a tone setter is a statement, I enjoy being the first poet to starts the show.

Poetic Roots

My roots with poetry are long. I have been writing since I was 10 years old. A lot of my early poems were turned into rap lyrics immediately. While most poets have their heroes: Robert Frost, E.E. Cummings, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, etc. my heroes were rappers (emcees).

Street poetry was the coined term before Hip Hop was a culture. Most critics say that rapping is not poetry. I counter that remark with this: evolution is a recurring event. So, when poets view some new or strange styles of poetry, they need to understand the importance is still the words.

I thought about how to define my own poetry. I assumed poetry was similar to a painting or music. I made it for someone to read or recite and build their own interpretation.

But reading Austin Kleon’s book, Show Your Work, revealed my work can’t tell stories by itself. My poetry is my work. So I have to explain the unfamiliar parts because what I do is me.
