        Slow Dance, by Matthew Dickman

        This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features the poet Matthew Dickman reading his poem “Slow Dance” at the Dodge Poetry Festival. “Human beings are meaning-making creatures. We cannot help it. We cannot stop doing it.” This quote from Matthew Dickman could be the motto of everyone who reads poetry: even when you are not quite sure you understand it, you want to find meaning in it, and you do.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere filmed at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
