365 Days of Happy - Day 3

Anis Mojgani is my favorite poet. I first heard this poem last summer. My friend Ian showed me this on his new iPad. I fell in love with Anis Mojgani instantly, and although I love all of his poems, this one is by far my favorite.

I love the way he hesitates before some verses, like he has forgotten what to say. I love the little smirk on his face and his bed hair. I love his body language, how he puts his hand in his pocket and then commands attention with a single point of his finger. I love how he slightly stands on his toes at the very end. I love how he articulates every carefully placed word. I love his voice. I could listen to this poem every day and still get chills down my spine.

I love his humble confidence, like he knows that this poem has changed my life.
