Best of 2018 #5: Olivia Gatwood – “When I Say That We Are All Teen Girls”
“When I say that we are all teen girls, what I mean is that when my grandmother called to ask why I didn’t respond to her letter, all I heard was, ‘Why didn’t you text me back? Why don’t you love me?’”
Heading into the new year, we’ll be counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2018! Coming in fifth on the list, “When I Say That We Are All Teen Girls” by Olivia Gatwood. Congratulations Olivia!
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.
And while you’re here, make sure to check out our other books and merch as well, including our awesome t-shirts and posters, and books by Rudy Francisco, Rachel Wiley, Neil Hilborn, Phil Kaye, and our newest release from Andrea Gibson!
