Pretty



Here it is. The poem "Pretty," performed by its creator, Katie Makkai.

I've heard the message all my life and always have claimed to agree with it, yet why does it pierce so potently still?

[Please note: the poet briefly uses obscenity to illustrate her point... which is so pressing that you should watch it anyway]

"Not contained in five letters"

Wow.

You can tell she is speaking from her gut.

That's pretty amazing, even with the f-bomb. She's definitely got a point with what she's saying. We truly live in an age of image.
