Recently, poet Mickey Morgan, was kind enough to read one of my previously published poems, Idle, which you can listen to here.
Idle, was first published in Sarasvati magazine Issue 17 in summer 2011. It’s one of a selection that will be appearing alongside my themed poems in my forthcoming collection, A Model Archaeologist, by Eyewear Publishing.
It’s always interesting to hear your own work read by another person.
When I write a poem, I hear it in a certain way in my mind. Idle was one of my more frivolous batch, and indeed when I read it aloud, I tend to adopt a playful, almost puerile manner to convey the obstinate tone of the poem. But Mickey’s reading gives it a more serious, sinister edge, which gives it a different dynamic altogether. Gotta say, I love it! What a new angle on my own piece.
