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.

What they said to think, I thought not

I’m delighted to see my poem “Everyone in Me Is a Bird” featured at the Academy’ of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day today! This poem was inspired by a line from Anne Sexton’s poem “In Celebration of My Uterus.”
