Collection of Crime Scenes
'A Collection of Crime Scenes' is a haunting, remarkable anthology of spoken word poetry by Corbet Dean. Recorded at various venues throughout the country, these emotional stories reflect the gritty, complex world Corbet Dean confronts every day as a police officer. Including art by World Poetry Champion Buddy Wakefield, two-time Haiku Champion Tazuo Yamaguchi, and Arizona poet Bill Campana, 'A Collection of Crime Scenes' is a truly unforgettable listening experience. 'Corbet transcends stereotypes, shifts paradigms, and genuinely reaches. Him and faith, they've got the same hunger-punch.' -BUDDY WAKEFIELD, Two-time Individual World Poetry Champion 'With it's success and media exposure, the slam has inadvertently spawned many slick-tongued poet/performers... more concerned with fashion than truth. Not so with Corbet Dean. He is an example of slam's original intention: to give voice to people from all walks of life, and to find a choir of truth in what we all say.' -MARC SMITH, Founder of the Poetry Slam 'Very few poets have been down his road. No one else can tell his stories. Corbet has a voice that goes back in time, to those moments we avoid and forget. He goes there so we don't have to. And if you do go, he's willing to stand with you and be the light. If you don't get Corbet Dean you're probably lost. This here is one of my favorite humans. Let him guide you.' -MIGHTY MIKE McGEE, National & World Poetry Champion.
