We know Sherwin Ginez (aka Re-Verse) looks kind of scary in this picture, but that’s the way we love him. Anybody who saw Re-Verse cover Marshall ‘Soulful’ Jones’ ode to Heath Ledger and Hollywood recently would have to agree that he is a scary good performer. That’s why we’re proud to be giving him our feature spot at the Poetry Ruckus this Wednesday night (12/12/12!!!) @ Ducky Waddle’s Emporium (414 N Coast Hwy 101 Encinitas).
When he’s not doing his best Joker impression, Re-Verse is filling notebooks and stages like the Ruckus and Glassless Minds with daft and heartfelt verses. Here’s a snippet from ‘Imperfect’, one of our favorite poems from his chap book, Raw Iced Tea:
When God said, ‘Let there be light.”
He seared sunlight into the blueprint of your lips
So your smile would be the first morning
I woke up from nonexistence
He painted constellations
Into the spine of your soul
So when I’d hug you
I can tell people what it’s like
to hold the universe in my arms
Come have fun with us at the Ruckus on Wednesday. Doors open at 7PM, local poets go on at 7:30 and Re-Verse at 9. E-mail Ruthlesshippies@gmail.com to RSVP a performance spot.
And please do some Christmas shopping at Ducky Waddle’s. I am confident in saying that they deserve your business more than Amazon!!!
