So in a weird-cool turn of events the team at Prometheus Dreaming decided to use my poem Morning Commute in their Thus Spake Prometheus series.
A strange feeling as I never thought about hearing one of my poems read aloud by someone else, always in my own head, in my own voice. However, they did a great job with it. Read by Brian Liebforth, who did a fantastic job. I was curious to know if the inflections and tone would be translated in others reading and it was.
You can follow the link above to hear it at their homepage. Or here to listen on the YouTube page. Thanks again to David and the team for the unique opportunity.
Last chance to view my poem Morning Commute live at Prometheus Dreaming. Thanks to David van den Berg for giving me the chance
From the website…

I poke holes in a cloudless sky with words. Holes in her. Holding her. I will be buried with words, if I’m buried at all. This latex sheen, peeling smooth, revealing what’s behind the sky. More sky.
