Poetry

Jim Morrison of The Doors was not only a songwriter, but a poet.  He would “sit-in” with one of his favorite local bands and recite his poetry to their music.  Jim liked to use the rhythm of the band’s music to move his words.  Interesting fact: This local band later changed its name to Kansas and went on to multi-platinum success. *
