Ever Feel Like Running Down the Street Naked?

Well Why Girl has a solution that won’t get you arrested.

Read Naked Poetry.  Write Naked Poetry.

“Naked Poetry is a naked woman, a naked man, and the distance between them.”

Strip poetry of traditional literary forms and devices, especially rhyme and meter by choosing “open forms.”

Relevant examples cone from the BEAT POETS — Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gregory Corso.


—Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Poetry as Insurgent Art, “Nowadays its exactly what it is, but when I’m talking to you about my fears, my goals, my future plans, my family, my hopes, my memories of myself as a kid, my habits, my routines, my dreams, my sadness, my confusion, my happiness, just everything about my impatient self, that’s what feeling naked really is to me.”
