Writing Inspiration: Lily Myers’ “Shrinking Women”

I have a love-hate relationship when it comes to poetry. In that I hate writing it, but I love listening to it. In particular, I think some of the best poetry is slam poetry, where you can really feel the person’s intention with each word.

When I watched “Shrinking Women,” performed by Lily Myers, I was just floored. Every word she used is perfect, and she gets it all across in three minutes. I’m not a poet, but this is a great reminder that you don’t need 100 pages to prove your point.
