Napkin Reviews

By Amanda Toledo & Mariana Leiva


A napkin review
From two poetry loving
Homosapiens

We’ll use this new segment, which we have entitled ‘napkin reviews’ to share with you guys our cheap, chill and non literary reviews about some AMAZING works of poetry.

I know that you might be wondering who the hell would actually read or listen to poetry when it’s not a curriculum requirement; and well let me tell you that there are at least two weird geeks in this planet who still enjoy a good old verse. - But WAIT! - Before you skip on to the next article watch the next vid, and remember that poetry aint all about Shakespeare!

Zombie- Destroying Abuelita II by Jonathan Mendoza & Melissa Lozada-Oliva

About the video:
An apocalypse!?
Guess my abuelita will
Need more platanos :D

Since we are bringing the 90’s back, why shouldn’t we bring Slam Poetry back?
For those who are oblivious to the magic of this AWESOME spoken word performance, Slam Poetry is a competition in which poets recite original work before an audience. This poems are highly political, talking about racial, gender and economic injustices as well as current or important issues - a.k.a. What to do in a zombie apocalypse if you are a 82 years old grandma - As we could listen in the video, this hipster poets approached delicate themes as abuse, immigration and racial issues and still managed to crack us up! I mean words truly are amazing!

Follow these literary babes!
