I loved these clips. I tried to wiki abstruse poetry, but it didn't recognize it at all... where can I find more about this??
Hahaha. Abstruse means obscure or hard to understand, and I'm therefore a total hypocrite for using it in this post. Anyway, this is spoken word poetry, and these poets are Billy Collins and Taylor Mali. Look them up for some really great spoken word poetry. I think you'll love them, or at least I do. Sarah Kay is also wonderful. Look up her TED Talk "If I Should Have a Daughter."Also, a Wikipedia article on Spoken Word: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoken_word
