Comments

Great article!

"Some poems are perfectly constructed as scores for voice – they are in tune with the anatomy of the instrument they are written for, they trust the voice, and are both inspiring and liberating to perform."

Ever heard Vachel Lindsay perform "The Chinese Nightingale?" There is a recording at the U of Penn website...let me see if I can post a link to it. I've listened to it 100 times-- it freaks me out. Here it is: http://media.sas.upenn.edu/pennsound/authors/Lindsay/Lindsay-Vachel_8_Chinese-Nightingale_New-York_1931.mp3

He was into something between a poem and a song. This makes me wonder why we in the west separated poetry from music to begin with. Something powerful and beautiful about this to me.

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
