A Poetry Slam For Valentine's Day

In honor of Valentine's Day, Tell Me More hosts a love-themed poetry slam, featuring poets Derrick Weston Brown, Rob Sachs, Olu Burrell, Mary Ann Larkin and Kentry Kinard.

While their poems all focused on love, each offered a different take on what love means. Often employing humor, the poets analyzed the good and bad — from broken hearts and unreturned emotions to long-lasting love and the joining of souls.
