Safia Elhillo – “Alien Suite” (CUPSI 2016)


Performing at the 2016 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational
“Did our mothers invent loneliness,¬†or did it make them our mothers?”
Don’t miss this unbelievable new poem from Safia Elhillo. The performance is a seamless medley of 14 of Safia’s poems, and comprised her feature set at the 2016 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational finals. This is the longest video we’ve ever featured on Button, and it’s well worth a full watchthrough.
