Terisa Siagatonu - “Trigger”

"When you ask your parents about the monsters in your closet, do they tell you that there’s nothing to be afraid of, that even those in closets have monsters of their own?"

Continuing our series of videos from the 2012 National Poetry Slam, today we have a poem from Terisa Siagatonu, performing for Hollywood’s Da Poetry Lounge. Da Poetry Lounge went on to place 4th in the tournament.
