Late poets Lucille Clifton, Frank O'Hara, and Adrienne Rich raise their middle fingers to "yolo" and rise from the dead to battle for slam poetry supremacy. "Dead or Alive" pits modern poets against actors portraying deceased greats in a competitive slam poetry battle royale. This will not, however, be a battle to the death, as half of the competitors have already kicked the bucket. —Jamie Keiles
