Final 4 Poetry Edition

My Final four animated  poems were:

Cartoon Physics Part 1 by: Nick Flynn

New York by: Valzhyna Mort

Those Winter Sundays by:  Robert Hayden

and last but not necessarily least, Space Bar by: Heather McHugh

The Winner… Cartoon Physics Part 1 by: Nick Flynn. The poem won because of its originality, creativity, and its ability to provoke deep thought. He uses ideas that are rarely written about, and uses metaphors and ideas to provoke a reaction of deep thought. It was extremely well written, and really made sense, but still made you think, and wonder. The ability to make a reader wonder, in my mind, is very important, and becoming rarer. Nick Flynn did a great job, and a link to the animated poetry, along with a picture of the author, is below:
