Anonymous asked: how do you determine if someone is too old to date?


I have a handy chart I like to use for this exact dilemma 


Javon Johnson & Terisa Siagatonu - “PTSD”

"The only difference there is between a soldier with PTSD and one of my students with it, is that the soldier gets to leave the battlefield while my kids go home to it."

Performing at the 2013 National Poetry Slam for Hollywood’s Da Poetry Lounge. Check out more of Javon’s work in VIRAL.


Bianca Phipps - “Almosts” (CUPSI 2014)

"Words can only help you if you speak them. I never told you that I loved you. You never told me you were dying."

Performing for the University of Northern Colorado at the 2014 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational.

Jenesis Fonseca - “The Way to a Woman’s Heart” (CUPSI 2014)

"They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. There is no proverb about the way to a woman’s heart. The way into her is more important."

Performing for Princeton during semifinals at the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational.


Carrie Rudzinski - “In America” (WoWPS 2014)

"In America, we are taught to scream the word ‘FIRE’ if being assaulted, because no one will help us if we yell ‘RAPE.’ “

Performing at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam. Carrie placed 4th overall in the tournament.

Were we ever people or did serving at the pleasure of the president just help us to shed our pesky skins and unmask us as the monsters we really are?
