Amanda Gorman reads inauguration poem ‘The Hill We Climb’

From PBS:

Great poem, wonderful reading.

Brings me back to something in the vein of Steve Coleman’s ‘I Wanna Hear a Poem’ slam poetry. First heard this back in sophomore year of high school; haven’t forgotten it since.

My favorite stanza:

I wanna hear a poem where ideas kiss similes so deeply that metaphors get jealous

Where the subject matters so much that adjectives start holding pro-noun rallies at city hall
