 THE CHURCH OF POETRY MANIFESTO

We have many names…

THE CATHEDRAL OF ILL REPUTE

THE CHURCH OF POETRY

THE SACRED SELFS

THE ILLICIT POETS SOCIETY

This is the teaching of the lyrical and the poetic as holy. Each of the arts conspire to rise up in the traditional, a gathering of intellectuals where galleries rise up in our names and venues are made from dirt and decay, anywhere and everywhere. This is a secret society with a certain code. Here we prostitute all knowledge & esteem of the spiritual. At the core our main focus is the invoking of the artistic spirit of all. “The lyrical backbone that exists within all of us.” There is suggested reading- watching- listening weekly, and a surplus of resources. This is a safe haven for connoisseurs of the arts. Incense and Palo Santo as the holy perfume. Certain poetry as the holy mantra. The Church of Poetry doubles as not only an institute of learning, but as a Cathedral, a Cafe, a Monastery, a place of refuge and a human library. Jazz is the sound of the soul. We do not make a mockery of religion, we pay tribute to its worship. Here we wish to cover every revolt. A MOVEMENT IN EMBRYO. Together we make sentiment of satire, as everything is treated as an impressionable first draft.We riot to keep mom and pop bookstores available, and libraries open and active. We distribute our work wherever we go, and pave the importance of literature into each technological advancement. Together we are fighting to keep the traditional art of reading alive by any means possible.
