The Long Poem is ideal for performance. Performers can choose parts of each page they like to create a unique play out of them.

The lines can be sang as a choir, theater, individual performance, serious or humorous style. Each line challenges how you want to articulate it emotionally. You are given permission to play with the words.


At a poetry party one person read every other line of a poem just to see how much fun the words created. Another personread every line of a page starting from the bottom instead of the top and the poetry sounded just as good as if read from the top to bottom. Amazing.

We will create this concept that people can turn parts of the poem into a play in Energy Theater, to prove it can be done.
