Best of 2019 #7: Leah Anderson – “You Ask Me What I Am So You May Know How To Fear Me”
“I can tell you my history by the things my eyes have seen, but you learn nothing by the shape of them.”
Heading into the new year, we’ll be counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2019! Coming in seventh on the list, “You Ask Me What I Am So You May Know How To Fear Me” by Leah Anderson. Congratulations Leah!
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.
While you’re here, head over to the Button store to check out our books and merch, including books by Sabrina Benaim, Neil Hilborn, Michael Lee, Blythe Baird, Raych Jackson, & our newest releases from Jared Singer & Porsha Olayiwola!
