Button Poetry

It’s one thing to experience a poem on the page. It’s quite another to see and hear it performed by the author. Button Poetry’s YouTube channel has a vast collection of videos showcasing poets from around the world, including Sabrina Benaim’s 2014 performance of “Explaining My Depression to My Mother,” which has nearly 8 million views, and Neil Hilborn’s 2013 reading of “OCD,” which has 14 million.
