I’m not sure who’s teasing whom in this one. And I’d count the puns if there wasn’t work to do. Listen here.

Another sonnet containing a conversation, this one in a rented room.

I find I’m seldom doing more than one take on the poems themselves, but I rewrite their brief introductions a dozen times and record each version 3 or 4 times. Is it worth the time and trouble? Does it add anything to the reading of the poem? If it does, is that a problem? Shouldn’t they have to stand on their own?
Of course, on the page (whether paper or electronic) they don’t stand on their own: they’re surrounded by other poems in a chosen order, and the reader can go back and forth in the text of each or go to another book or web page, or ask someone else a question about the poem.
What do you think?

I’ve podcast the 3rd sonnet, “Too Late Now,” from the second section of Other Voices.
I’ve moved to php for tags and categories on the podacsts. The new links are, for the mss as a whole, (Other Voices) and, for each for the first 2 sections, (Arse Poetica and Sonneteer). I’ll add another for the last section when we get to it, and I’ll probably add the links to “Me & Mine” over on the left.

The second section of Other Voices is called “Sonneteer” and, not surprisingly, consists entirely of sonnets. The first one, podcast today, is “Petulant Muse.” Before thinking better of if, she almost gets her sister Calliope involved. Listen here.
BTW, I’ve added 3 categories on the podacsts: 1 for the mss as a whole (Other Voices) and 1 each for the first 2 sections (Arse Poetica and Sonneteer). I’ll add another for the last section when we get to it.
