I must admit, when I saw a submission for spoken word artist Trey The Ruler performing a new poem called “Campfire” come in I almost deleted it on the spot. Spoken word artist? What the hell is that? Out of pure curiosity I watched the video he did with the dudes at Punks In Vegas and I gotta say, I was moved! By poetry! I didn’t know I had it in me and I didn’t know something like a spoken word poet could be so punk rock (apparently this dude has toured with a bunch of punk bands). Anyway, his work is… dare I say it… quite beautiful, and I recommend checking out this video of him doing “Campfire.” If the video intrigues you Trey The Ruler has a whole album of poems you can stream and/or download for free here.
