speak your mind.

i've pretty much slid off the wagon of posting once/twice/thrice every day, and i've decided that that's alright :)

since the start of the month, however, i've wanted to blog about spoken word poetry and how important i think it is. my opinion, though, really isn't one you need any more of right now, and my love for well-written and performed spoken word poetry is (ironically) something i have struggled to adequately express in words, so i decided for this post to simply share some of my absolute favourite spoken word poets with you and let you reach conclusions on your own.
