365 Poems: Viral and video and poetry

Day 226

This one got picked up on Reddit and seems to be going viral. Who would ever think Reddit would be an agent for saving and changing poetry?

When I watched this I was blown away. The emotion, the rhythm, the arc of the story, and of course the performance. Such a brave poet/performer. And I'm so jealous.

[update] I had to think about how to say this, but I love the way he incorporates his OCD into the poem and the performance. WOW.
