I want to go to a poetry slam

i want to write poetry just to verbally deliver it

i want to go to some random coffeeshop and listen to other people be really passionate about what they care about

i want it to matter not just how a poem is written, but how it is spoken and delivered, so that your emotion counts

i want searing voices, bittersweet stories, vulgar language, and heartfelt exclamations

i want snaps instead of claps

i want people from the underground

stepping up to the mic is easy

backing away without gashes in your self-esteem is the struggle
