Two Poets Trade Places and Races for an Incredible Performance

A unique reading at 2015 College Unions Poetry Slam explores similarities and differences regarding privilege.

Slam poetry is not often done in pairs, but two poets pulled off this unorthodox method in incredible fashion. Darius Simpson and Scout Bostley performed their piece “Lost Voices” at the 2015 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational to much acclaim.

Button Poetry captured the poem on film, along with many others that were performed at CUPSI 2015.
