We cramped our brains a little trying to figure out whether it still counts as spoken word if you print it in a book, but whatever it is, we enjoyed JAVA MONKEY SPEAKS, VOLUME 2, an anthology of poems by poets who have performed at the weekly open mic at Decaturs Java Monkey. Edited by Kodac Harrison and Collin Kelley, this second edition has some serious poetry power.
