Spoken word is a performance artistic poem that is word-basic. It often includes collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as musictheater, and dance. However, spoken word usually tends to focus on the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions, and not so much on the other art forms.  In entertainment, spoken-word performances generally consist of storytelling or poetry, exemplified by people like Hedwig GorskiGil Scott Heron and the lengthy monologues by Spalding Gray.
