This year has been a good year for me with regards to reading more poetry collections and I am better for it. This is one of the best collections I have read so far.
The 7 poems in this collection are poems by Lily Myers, Neil Hilborn, Javon Johnson, Rachel Rostad, Pages Matam, Dylan Garity, and Guante topped 200,000 views on the Button Poetry YouTube page. This book however, is not just a collection of these viral poems but also includes essays written by each author that give an insight to the inspiration for the poems they wrote and the interesting or thought provoking back stories that shaped these exceptional pieces of work. It was hard to pick a favorite but my top three would be ‘Pinata’ by Pages Matam, ‘OCD’ by Neil Hilborn and ‘Shrinking Women’ by Lily Myers.
You can watch the performances of these poems here:
Enjoy! I highly recommend.
