Nikesh Murali Reads “In Another Dimension, We Are Making Love”

My Poem Dressed in a Ball Gown

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 (@_nikeshmurali) on Twitter, you’re missing out. Every week he posts gorgeous readings. His voice is currently my favorite instrument for playing poetry.
