Love is Leaving the Door Unlocked: Slam Poetry

The vast land of the internet holds a lot of little wonders. Today’s (not so little) wonder is a piece of powerful spoken word poetry by Neil Hilborn, a St. Paul, Minnesota resident, competing in Rustbelt 2013 this past June. At the regional poetry competition, Hilborn eloquently and painfully describes the rise and fall of someone experiencing love and OCD.

While this video’s virality will soon be over, don’t neglect to support your local spoken work and slam poetry like this boundlessly talented man. It’s not about the disability he lives with but the beauty he speaks with. See more of Neil’s work on his and .
