Writer’s Shout Out

vintage record player

What a delight to play some music and read some poetry that is influencing my work, to share some of that work, and chat with writer Rena Priest!

The Playlist:

Jimi Hendrix: All along the watchtower

Anna Akhmatova

He loved three things in life:

Evensong, white peacocks

And old maps of America.

He hated it when children cried.

Edgar Meyer: Bach Cello Suite (on bass), C Minor Courante

Asaf Avidan: Bang Bang

Sheila Chandra: Speaking in Tongues

Johnny Cash: Personal Jesus

Kenneth Patchen

The sea is awash with roses O they blow

Upon the land

The still hills fill with their scent

O the hills flow on their sweetness

As on God’s hand

O love, it is so little we know of pleasure

Pleasure that lasts as the snow

But the sea is awash with roses O they blow

Upon the land

Buena Vista Social Club: Chan Chan

Nina Simone: Sugar in my Bowl

DakhaBrakha: Sho Z-Pod Duba
