The Audio Poem:
Björn hosts Open Link Night at d’Verse Poets Pub where he encouraged us to post audio versions of our poems. So above is my first attempt. The written poem can be seen below. Oh, and by the way, this poem is not really about kayaking or radios.
As my sticker to the right states — questions, doubts and criticisms are welcome!! Please make me a better writer and thinker — tell me what you think (uncensored). And though compliments are fine, they are not what I covet. I love questions and doubts.
Today my car radio crackled:
familiar songs were muffled
and the voices unfamiliar.
That’s because yesterday I kayaked:
a strenuous, delightful escape
over smooth, hypnotic waters.
But loading my kayak for the journey
required retracting my car antenna.
Now returning to my familiar world
I must put my things back in order.
So I reached out my window,
pulled the antenna back up,
and the songs were once again
