Spoken Word Monday: “You Gone Get This Work” by Jasmine Mans [VIDEO]

“Don’t make it rain if you can’t make it grow.”

On August 2, 2013, Jasmine Mans performed her spoken word poem “You Gone Get This Work” at Stage 48.  As a part of the “Anthology” show via The Strivers Row, Mans delivered a cutthroat take on the fall of formerly headstrong strong men who cater their lives to false machismo. And women who speak or exploit their sexuality to the point that it seems that is all they have to offer and they themselves believe it.

It’s powerful, it’s uncomfortable, it’s audacious. Watch it below.
