I found out about Button Poetry via a video clip of Phil Kaye reading a poem with Sarah Kay. Then I looked up more spoken word poetry videos from their page and I was obsessively in love with them.
I bought Date & Time by Phil Kaye and helium by Rudy Francisco as my first collection in 2019 and love them both immensely. When Rudy is releasing a new poetry book, I’ll Fly Away, I had to get it. Together with his new book, I added Our Numbered Days by Neil Hilborn. Now I have four books from Button Poetry on my bookshelf along with its tote bag and a mug.
Through Button Poetry, I discovered new contemporary poets and their eloquent poems composed on various aspects. I also like poems by Andrea Gibson, Brenna Twohy, Michael Lee, and Jared Singer. I plan to add their books in my collection in future.
