Hear me read a new poem on the latest Lame Town Review podcast.It's a worthwhile way to spend 30 minutes, with a diversity of featured poets amidst a stellar mix of tunes.
It was recorded July 7th, 2011 in Tom Yoder’s backyard at dusk (crickets and mosquitos), around the picnic table (set with hors d'oeuvres, a bottle of wine and a mic) and became illuminated by candlelight as we surrendered to the night and the power of the spoken word. The almost famous Mouthful Trio (Renee Podunovich, Danielle Desruisseaux and Laura Thomas) is featured as well as Cannonball himself and a guest appearance by the long lost Lt. Hope. Tom’s 16-year-old, toothless dog accompanied us, howling his passions into the oncoming darkness. We were visited by the spirit of the poets themselves through the magic of their words as they were lifted off the page like Nighthawks by our humble human voices.
Read Tom’s sentiments about the evening at his Lame Town Review blog.
