Transgressive: A Prelude

Standing on a stage, swinging the mic stand back and forth in a hypnotic sludgy haze, hair and beard dripping cheap dye from sweaty eyes, cheap stage blood running down a bare chest turning a scrawled prophetic message into a smudged mess of meaningless gibberish, a barked diatribe from a throat burning with Everclear fumes, foreseeing a new front in American Anything.

And none of it was as controversial as a kiss.

--Walter Beck is from Indiana where he is known for his intense poetry, performances and activism, as well as his often bizarre appearance on-stage.
