Slam Poetry

I went down the rabbit hole of slam poetry of YouTube and you can't really do that without coming across Neil Hilborn.
Carver was the first one I listened to - he had me with that first line and it gets even more intense as he goes:

Breast Allergy - I would love it for the pun nice to teat you alone

You can buy the Button Poetry e-book with some of Hilborn's poems and more from equally talented authors here and you should because there is not one poem in there that doesn't do its best to set your mind on fire.

Like so:
