    This Chick Is Really Good Live

    I saw her a couple of years ago at an activist's trial. I should just really bookmark this video, since I watch it often enough. Disregard the slip-up in the middle.

    It makes me cry, or at least get goose bumps

    when I hear people's raw emotions like that it's not the words I care about but how they feel them and how I feel them its more about emotion than words and I think the message of the poem comes from the feeling rather than the words the words just a transport for the feelings...

    I'm actually in love with Michael Lee.

    I relate to him on the battle of sobriety and the death of loved ones, it's something so complex that I'm amazed that he captures them into short poetry.

    I spend most nights falling into the internet

    rabbit hole of slam poems, but I've had such a hard time finding people who love it as much as I do. Anyone else listen to Dia Davina? Or anyone at the Vancouver Poetry Slam?
