Slam Poetry: Lily Myers – “Shrinking Women”

I’ve had this specific Button Poetry video in my favorites for a very long time but have totally forgot about it until our focus on slam poetry and Kai Davis’ work last class. Whether or not you have seen this, it’s absolutely breathtaking. This is Lily Myers with Button Poetry titled “Shrinking Women”. The way she, amongst every other slam poet, is able to translate highly tense and complex thoughts and feelings always hits me harder than I expect. Please take time to watch it.
