Best of 2018 #2: Rudy Francisco – “Scars/To the New Boyfriend”

“There is nothing rational about love. Love stutters when it gets nervous, love trips over its own shoelaces. Love is clumsy, and my heart refuses to wear a helmet.”

Heading into the new year, we’ll be counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2018! Coming in second on the list, “Scars/To the New Boyfriend” by Rudy Francisco. Congratulations Rudy!

Note: This countdown list only covers a small fraction of the brilliant artists who let us share their work on our channel this year, and is by no means a definitive list of the “best” poems, simply the ones that got the most views. Take some time and check out more from the past year on our channel.
