Excerpts from "Freedom Club" by Howard Monath
"Any universe simple enough to be understood,
is too simple to produce a mind capable of understanding it."
LAWRENCE D. 'BUTCH' MORRIS CONDUCTS
"A CHORUS OF POETS"
Improvisation Metroactive Music
A Chorus of Poets, now in its 13th year, represents a
neglected yet vital tradition in the spoken word community.
18 vocalists conjure the spiritual and the psychic
by cajoling the most marvelous void.
The effect is stunning and overwhelming.
