    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?

    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.

    I'm actually in love with Michael Lee.
