Hullabaloo Poetry

The Story

Hullabaloo Poetry technically began several years ago on Instagram. I set out to disrupt the space of Insta poetry—which is highly saturated with bleeding-heart love poems, with semi-pornographic renderings to boot—to change people's notions of what poetry is.

I believe that poetry doesn't have to be stiff, cerebral, or downright depressing. And poets don't have to be starving, a few marbles short, or clad in all black.

But over time, it became less about what poetry didn't have to be and more about what it could be...

I envisioned my fun, funny, and uplifting poetry on clothing, mugs, posters, pillows, you name it. I saw poetry as fashion, home decor, a way of life. Or rather, a way to make people smile and laugh daily—as they clutch their irreverent mug or sport their inspiring shirt—and open their minds to magical possibilities.

You see, art is there to make people feel something, and I want people to feel good.

So, one day, I started creating, and here we are. 

I hope all of my poetry products bring you as much joy and laughter as they’ve brought me. :)
