While at the 2017 Texas Grand Slam Cypher in Bryan, Texas, poet Sunni Soper took a moment to perform one of her pieces, the extremely moving and revealing Castle Walls, for Write About Now‘s YouTube channel. In all honesty, however, it feels more like a confession via the digital realm… a sit-down between us viewers and Sunni Soper as she reveals, retracts, respects, retracts, and all in a beautifully rhythmic poetic cycle. Her forceful voice, her commanding presence, her honest nature… all of it is conveyed in a powerful three minutes. Much respect. You know the drill.. like it, share it, leave a comment to verify the all around badassery.

This was in response to a previous poet’s gratuitous use of the n-word.
