In recent years, we've seen poetry emerge as an increasingly accessible art form: Beyoncé and her cold glass of Lemonade helped Warsan Shire sell out on Amazon. Maggie Smith's poem, "Good Bones" went viral and ended up in an episode of Madam Secretary. Walter White was treated to some choice Walt Whitman on more than one occasion. I want to talk about all of these intersections and more because I'm interested in what they tell us about art, entertainment, and ourselves.
