READ TO ME from... ROSH HASHANAH VIGIL: 5780 by Verandah Porche

Verandah Porche is, gosh, a supernova? A galaxy of poems? Go   here   to read more poems, see her collaborations (  this one   is my favorite), and learn about her work as a traveling poet.   SUDDEN EDEN   is her most recent book. Read it. Your soul will be happy.

In this episode, we read ROSH HASHANAH: 5780, a poem from Verandah Porche, one of the most original minds and poets I know. We see the gobstopping power of mirror structures. We live an immigrant history. We bless butterflies. We turn to the coming year charged to do better, and shown how.

Thank you, Verandah, for your poems, your life of work, and your friendship.

Thank you, Cody of Deadbeats, for managing a week of technical haggle.

What did you love?

Where did you feel the history in the body? Where did the sound of the language tap your ear and change the meaning for you? How did part 1 and part 2 talk to each other for you? Which images do you still see after listening? What did you love?
