This is lovely. But what a surprise! It’s very different from how I hear it in my head, which is much more matter-of -fact, almost harsh, and quizzical, with just a crack of emotion at the enormity of the central thought. I think I understand now what my uneasiness is about audio recordings of poetry, as opposed to live readings. There should not be just one – a poem can be read in many voices. This is lovely, though. I don’t care if it’s a perfect poem. I don’t think I’m interested in perfect poems, but in poems that sing and satisfy and reach in with a thin wire to touch something deep and leave a little shock.
