Abstract

Tooth Decay Dreams is the new collaboration of spoken word poetry presented by The Alive Poets Society slam poetry team. There is a myth that when one dreams about teeth decaying—missing—rotting it means there is regret for one’s actions or words. The slam team members are no exception to these immense feelings which is why we chose to use these themes as a framework for our individual pieces. Because it is impossible to live without regret, we hope that in writing and performing poetry we are able to process and cope better. Regret can be devastatingly isolating which is why we created these pieces—as a way of connecting people through similar human experiences and emotions.
