For when your body feels like an elevator you're stuck in.

Shira Erlichman is definitely one of the illest poets in the spoken word niche of performers that completely push back on the notion that traditional narrative structure is the only way to tell a story. "Daddy's Parking Lot Sermon" is a roller-coaster ride of images and undeniable truisms, all bound up within the package of an invaluable message to the generation coming up after us. Shira Erlichman is fresh, hope to see her live show one day. Apparently she also plays the guitar.

Who says poets aren't multi-talented?

    by the time she said, "your head was a tumor full of prayers," i felt my skull cave in. and then she kept going! i would marry her. she coulda been a bald paraplegic, i'd still marry her.
