Local poet Donald Dunbar - who has some familiarity with the sound of poetry read aloud, as part of the If Not For Kidnap reading series - has an extremely helpful piece up on Sound, an online literary magazine about, well, the sound of poetry. Thankfully, the actual piece is never as malicious or mean as the (admittedly pretty on-point) Condescending Wonka meme image accompanying the story:
It's goofy and deep in equal measure, masking its intellectual sincerity and actual comment in absurdity, to wonderful effect. I don't want to ruin it by quoting it, so trust me that every line is gold. Just go check it out.
