#PoetryMonth: Some #PoetsofInstagram, part 2

This is the first of two posts featuring a number of poets from Instagram. I recently posted an explanation as to why I’m focusing on IG poets. You can find that here if you haven’t read it yet. I hope you check them out and also share others you may know of.

The Beauty of a Woman

by Yvette, @onedertwinpowers

The Beauty of a Woman

She is Shapely Contours,
‘La Femme physique’
of contrasting Design.
With each curvature,
the story…
graphically aligned.
Consciously aware
is the Beauty…
in and of this find.

Visually taste…
teleported in time,
released Inhibitions
confront unaccustomed minds.
She is Futuristic.
Doubled down on Double blind.
Confidently playing,
she wins Everytime.

these things shape us

by Emily Jane Burton, @emjaneburton

As we all know, poetry isn’t just about what’s on the page. Much of poetry is meant to be performed. What Emily is working on with her poetry is to put music to them. Now that you’ve read “these things shape us”, here’s a recording on the poem to compare and experience differently.
