"Beautiful"
by Bo Burnham

You're the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.
And I know that.

We all take the beauty that surrounds us each day for granted, and rarely take the time to realize how incredible these beauties truly are. But poetry is the best way to examine these everyday phenomena, focusing in on a particular part of our world, and appreciating it for exactly what it is. It is the honesty and bluntness of this poem, I feel, that captures both of these complicated and contrasting realities, whilst still staying playful and fun.
