In a basic sense, Spoken Word is a rhythmic poetry intended for performance. It is performed enthusiastically (be it vibrant or emotional), rather than just read plainly. Like other art forms it is a form or self-expression for the listener and reader. It can include, but is not limited to, poetry, rap, and other poetic writing.
