        Aunties, by Kevin Young

        This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features poet Kevin Young reading his poem "Aunties" at the Dodge Poetry Festival. “I feel like a poem is made up of poetic and unpoetic language, or unexpected language,” says Kevin Young; “Aunties” is a good example of allusive language, colloquial language, and poetic images all brought together to describe a wonderful lived experience of family.

        For a biography of poet Kevin Young, please visit the Poetry Foundation Web site.

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