This week I've been reading LUCKY FISH (poems) by Aimee Nezhukumatathil.
In a poem entitled "The Ghost-Fish Postcards," there are some very inviting lines:
“The whole planet howls – a conch blown on the beach, a pair of monkeys grate papaya rind into each other’s hungry mouths, a simple bee in a jeweled tulip. What is your sound & when & where should I listen?”
So I've been thinking about sounds. And listening.
The first thought that popped into my head in response to the query was, "my sound is Ben Sollee on the cello."
I'll be listening to Ben as I drive today to the Poetry Retreat with Rebecca Kai Dotlich. I'm excited! And I will be back Monday to tell you about it.
Meanwhile, tell me: What is your sound? And don't forget to visit Anastasia for Poetry Friday Roundup.
