Foreword Reviews

Sweet, Young, & Worried

Spoken word poetry asks for something quite rare among contemporary poets: a willingness to crawl out of the writing cave to stand on stage and perform. Fearless Blythe Baird creates her written work teeming with sound and rhythm, earning her performances international acclaim and a McKnight Artist Fellowship for Spoken Word.


oh, how humbling
it is to know:

the body
I threw stones at

is the same
body who is

still determined
to write

love letters
to me.
