Recent adaptations of the works of @KelliAgodon @Vanessid – prove multimedia is the future of poetry. Half a million listeners have tuned into my readings across multiple social media platforms in last few months, for the same reason. Here’s something new feat. @MelissaStuddard pic.twitter.com/0wROCJuAgk

Read by Nikesh Murali, my recent poem, “Everyone in Me Is a Bird,” (Poets.org) takes on new life. I told him I felt like the poem had shed its daily wear to dress up for the evening. If you’re not following Murali (@) on Twitter, you’re missing out. Every week he posts gorgeous readings. His voice is currently my favorite instrument for playing poetry.
I chose this particular poem by the most talented and gorgeous @MelissaStuddard because it is an excellent gateway into her creative universe. She is a poet I look forward to performing more. #spokenpoetry #poetryreading #spokenword #poetry #poem pic.twitter.com/bkyGprJFGj

Usually I’m afraid to watch myself on film, but because these two clips my friend and former student, Jeremy Birkline, posted after AWP 2017 are short, I watched them. And I didn’t die from it! So, I’m taking the next bravery step and posting them here.
