National Poetry Month: Lily Myers, Shrinking Women
Last year, one of my favorite authors, Delilah S Dawson, posted a link to a video. Now, I'm not in the habit of clicking on vid links - because, yeah - but I clicked on this link.
What I found was the most amazing, talented, and wonderful poet performing her work. I watched the video over and over again until the words had soaked into my bones. Then I sent the video to my sister and my mother. The poem was that good.
It's so good I feel compelled to share it with you now.
So, in honor of National Poetry Month I want to share the poem that blew my hair back. Shrinking Women by Lily Myers.
I hope you enjoy:
