Now, we are in the last third of this race. I’m not above asking for your support. since I’ve done it before. Anything you can contribute really goes towards making poet’s voice gain a little volume in this world. Or, if you’d like a different metaphor, our voices turn down the volume on the rest of the world and let people listen to the rhythm in their own heads and lungs and hearts. Tupelo Press is an indie publisher, and they could use your support.

We are 2/3 of the way through the challenge, my friends. I want to thank all of you for your visits and support. It means a lot to me. And I’m sorry I haven’t been very present this month. Next month I’ll be in my normal mode.

Here is my audio recording of my poem “while skydiving, i contemplate the inner ear, stalactites, the half-life of monamine oxidase inhibitors, why i consistently burn my bacon, and whether the chute will open” which you can read (in less time that you took to read that title) at Tupelo’s 30/30 Project page.
Look for Day 10 and the longest title on the page.
Part of the deal was that I would include an audio recording for Robert Okaji in exchange for his sponsoring (and titling) this poem. You can see his site here.
