Poetry is like food for the soul. And on days where you feel that no one understands you, poetry is there with open arms. Therefore, here are four male poets you didn’t know you needed in your life. You’re welcome.
- Patrick Roche: This man will break your heart. From writing about his experiences with panic attacks to his twenty-one years of life and the hard times they brought him, he will hit you so hard in your feelings your head will spin.
- George Watsky: Ever heard of Watsky Raps Fast? That’s this guy. Both a poet and a rapper, Watsky is able to string his words together that suddenly beat at your heart, begging to be let in. Of course, this isn’t without some laughs along the way. Hear him talk about being a virgin or about how nothing is as good as the first time.
- Oveous Maximus: Feminist, music producer, poet- Oveous Maximus does it all with a witty humor and a flair all his own. Whether he’s writing a letter to his future ex-girlfriend or talking about how cat-calling women is really not okay, you are sure to be taken onto a fast-paced ride. Buckle your seatbelts.
- Phil Kaye: Phil Kaye has this magical way of telling a story, even though sometimes it isn’t always in order. Regardless of that, he has a way with words you just have to see to believe.
