It’s my belief that there should be no apologies for art. However, i will make a disclaimer. This poem has content that may not be suitable for children. Watch accordingly.
With that being said, this poem is pure genius which would therefore make Danez Smith a spoken genius. Enjoy!
I recently had the opportunity to meet Nate after a performance that he did. He’s just as amazing a person as he is a poet. I hope that you enjoy his words as much as I do. Without further ado, here’s “Pallbearers:”
I think I love this man!!
I heard this on Pretty Willie aka P Dub’s album “The Turning Point” It has a good message! Check it out!
I adore Joshua Bennett. He has done things in the 20 some odd years of his life that normally takes people a lifetime to achieve. For that, I’m inspired by him. I found this poem that he wrote to his girlfriend Sarah who he’s in a long distance relationship with. It ended in an awww and *tears* from me. Lucky Girl!
She is wise beyond her years… Listen!

I love this piece just as much as I love him.
