I can’t afford WordPress’s space upgrade at the moment, so I’m going to post a link to where you ca hear me reading it if you’d like to. I apologize – I usually don’t link out from here to other blogs. I will note, however, that the Tumblr I’m linking to is my own, and that if you have a Tumblr, I do spend a lot of time procrastinating there because it is a very quick and easy way to time-waste without needing to think very hard for too long.
Click here to listen to my first attempt – one I enjoyed writing, more than I knew I would – at the spoken word poetry form.

i had the same dilemma last year but decided i didnt want to move blogs and i wasnt ready to quit either, so i went with the smallest space upgrade
1) Ooh, what a cool poem! I like the way the subject and vocab loop back on themselves; I like the way you’ve spoken it so that the line breaks are sometimes very obvious and artificial. You’ve nailed the cadence and style of spoken-word poetry. (Random TMI: I have a bad habit of ignoring line breaks in poetry — either my own or other people’s — and profs and fellow poetry writers/lovers were always reminding me to pay more attention to where I was breaking or not breaking lines. o-o”)
2) I love your voice! I’ve never heard it before.
Thank you so much for sharing! =D
