    I'm not sure if you've ever read Fahrenheit 451, but this reminds me a lot of it, especially with the description of the drones and being watched and that man so far away. I loved it, Shannon :)

    I love this. The questions you pose are so poignant, and that combined with the imagery used is great. I would love to maybe see a little more imagery maybe? What you have is so good.

    Absolutely right here. It would be really interesting if you went a little deeper into your comments about tribal politics, you end on that topic and I feel that it isn't quite explored enough.
    What you have is great!

    Such an interesting birthday poem! It is a birthday poem right?
    I appreciated how you toggled between imagery of the flower crown, and photographs, it created a really interesting affect.

    Yes - I agree with Shannon! Please make an audio recording, this would be unbelievably powerful to hear out loud straight from you.

    This is absolutely beautiful.
    I love the line “And we share the same feet”

    I reallyyy love your imagery in this poem! If you wanted to add a little bit more specific details as to what might be on the narrator's mind, it could add a different layer to what's happening here. I really loved this!!

    After first reading this, I was about to comment on its broadness and suggest choosing a couple issues that you felt strongly about. It felt odd to me to name a piece "Political Poetry" and then fail to mention any polarizing topics. But - after a second read, I think it was the right choice. To name anything specific (i.e. women's rights, racial justice, etc. etc.) without going into detail would be pointless. If you did go into detail, it'd change the entire poem.

    This encapsulates the feelings of a lot of young people today, without pushing anyone away. That's pretty cool, and not easily done!

    This was INCREDIBLE. I would love love love it if you recorded this and uploaded the audio here so we could hear your voice. Amazing amazing job, Shannon :)

    This is the visual version, meant to be read aloud. If you want to look at the one that is meant to be read silently, look for the other one which has visual in all caps in parentheses.

    This is the visual version, meant to be said. The verbal one has verbal written in all caps and parentheses.

    Not a bore at all, and I think that it's hopeful. Why did you create a salutation to "Soul?" I would write more but am busy reading those pieces that inspire you daily!

    Your language is so descriptive- i love the lines "YWP is a disguise,/a second skin that/you can slip on when /you feel the world is too much,/when you need to scream where/people can hear you,". Also your whole idea really resonates with me- YWP is also a place for me where my voice is my own but also isn't associated with me. You really capture the essence of what YWP is.
