the spoken word

on July 13, 2014, i had the opportunity to read some of the poems from my debut collection of found poetry, “I Am the Maker of all sweetened possum.” it was an instructive read. this was the first time that the words were read aloud. i toyed around with different methods of presenting the material. for one poem, i read against a recording of the alphabetized words on the page; for another, i read as two dancers (Clare Byrne and Selene Colburn) danced to “the dance steps.” unfortunately, my camera did not capture the best audio (and missed the dancers completely).

this particular piece – “the road, the river” – is one of my favorites from the reading – where the visual onscreen and the words together worked for me. enjoy…
