I know there’s a really great video going round of a man with OCD performing Slam Poetry so thought I’d share a favourite.
I first read about slam poetry in a book and had a look around the internet, and this video genuinely made me cry. Preach it, girl.
Thanks for Sharing and the OCD poem mentioned is by my friend Neil Hilborn.
This was filmed at the 2002 National Poetry Slam in Minneapolis! The National Poetry Slam is happening right now in Boston! http://nps2013.poetryslam.com/ Tonight is semi-finals and bunch of poets we’ve featured on this blog before will be competing! Best of luck to all of you!
"Pretty" is still one of my favorites! I watched that OCD poem last night and that led me to re-watch some of my other favorites here (100% true) and here (100% heartbreaking and fucking impressive). They still absolutely kill me every time.
