My poem read at Whale Sound

I'm very happy to have Nic Sebastian's lovely reading of my poem "Designer" up today at Whale Sound, a marvelous site of poem readings. Thanks, Nic, and Amy MacLennan, who submitted it!

If you haven't yet discovered Whale Sounds, you're in for a treat. Poems are made to spin out on the air, like birdsong, not just sit in hieroglyphics on a page. At least, that's my thought. Whale Sound's readings are a pure pleasure, in large part because of the beautiful way Nic reads. A good reader of poetry is a treasure, and too few poets cultivate the ability to read aloud as well as write.

Thanks for Whale Sound! And including my poem in it.
