Mini Review: I'm a Slut: A Slam Poem by Savannah Brown

I'm a Slut: A Slam Poem by Savannah Brown is a stunning example of the self-actualized generation of women who are battling not for the vote, like their grandmothers, but for the self. Savannah Brown is an intense, emotionally driven (in the way of the best performers) and sweeping orator. She's exactly the person we want to see creating. Convicting, forceful and elegant, Brown's poetry is as pristine as her cadence and as driving as a Koenigsegg on the autobahn.

you’re damn right my body is a temple
i am the god it was built for

i am the landlord
and i can let whoever i want live inside it
— Savannah Brown, I'm a Slut: A Slam Poem

There's not much to say in criticism of this piece. The background is simple, yet unobtrusive. It gives the right attention to Brown, and she deserves each second of attention. Her subject matter, however taboo, is gut punching, and a literary kick to the head to the objectification of women. I encourage you to watch Brown's performance. I also encourage you to hit her Patreon link and keep this emphatic and necessary poet writing.
