FROM THIS EPISODE

Poet Morgan Parker reveals she gets trolled on the Internet by those who say she's wrong -- nothing is more beautiful than Beyoncé. Really? Nothing more beautiful than love, the sky, roses, than Parker's own mother? She says that the poems in her book There Are Things More Beautiful than Beyoncé (Tin House Books) take a stand against the clichés of the dominant culture. And if a beautiful pop diva becomes part of that culture, it's Parker's mission to find things of beauty from our daily lives to celebrate.

Read an excerpt from There Are More Beautiful Things than Beyoncé.
