At a poetry reading last week, I asked the audience for topics. A young man seated with what was obviously his girlfriend asked for ‘Love’. So I read a poem I wrote in 1989.
Here’s the opening of that poem, set to beats and loops. Even though I mixed it with vocal presence, and it sounded fine on my iTunes, something happened to the track when it arrived on Soundcloud ….and the voice comes out at a low volume. Sounds okay through headphones though.
You’ll have to listen to the poem to find out why there’s a picture of a woman baking a cake….
