Getting the Words Off the Page

colour-speech-bubblesPoetry was originally meant to be heard, not read.  If you have eighteen minutes and any interest at all in words, watch this video on “spoken word” poetry, a Ted Talk by poet Sarah Kay.    If you only have three and a half minutes, then just watch the beginning and listen to her poem, “If I Should Have a Daughter…”   The last three minutes are pretty awesome too as she performs her poem “Hiroshima.”
