Poetry Slam

I was driving home yesterday listening to an On Being podcast (recommended by Lauren) about poetry. It was the first time in a while that I remembered that I love poetry. I always have. It is not something I really ever talked to anyone about or made that big of a deal. I used to write poems for years and years – up until the end of college. Listening to Sarah Kay’s passion for spoken word inspired me to start writing again; mostly because I realized it was one of the only things in my life that I shared only with myself.
