Poets Read: Round One

A mix of poets reading for the perusal and benefit of my esteemed students of poetry and poetics who would otherwise assume the reading of poems to be that undertaken under the greatest duress involving shortness of breath, much panting and dryness in the mouth, and whom after the briefest of engagements with said poets, offer up spectacular renditions of their very own poems. Or, for those of you who missed our discussion on Tuesday.

Caroline Bergvall, from Shorter Chaucers.

Christian Bok on behalf of George Bush and for Dick Higgins.

Patricia Smith
, Skinhead.

Jorie Graham from Dodge.

Harryette Mullen Lunch poems.

Sharon Olds and Billy Collins.
