Best of 2018 #6: Blythe Baird – “The Kindest Thing She Almost Did”
“When she tells me that she loves me and that she has a lying problem on the same day, I know I am completely and utterly fucked.”
Heading into the new year, we’ll be counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2018! Coming in sixth on the list, “The Kindest Thing She Almost Did” by Blythe Baird. Congratulations Blythe!
Blythe’s forthcoming book, IF MY BODY COULD SPEAK (Feb 2019), is now available for pre-order!
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!
