See the Poems, Read the Poems on ‘How Pedestrian‘
‘How Pedestrian’ is a vibrant and unique poetic resource featuring random people in random places reading poems. I was flattered that Katherine Leyton chose to celebrate the release of my first ever collection of poems (Tomorrow, We Will Live Here) by featuring strangers reading my poems. For those of you who haven’t bought the book, you can read and hear samples of my work and, if you dig it, please consider buying a copy here.
For the sake of laziness the videos are all below but definitely check out the How Pedestrian site. It is a great way to introduce yourself to very high quality contemporary poetry. I cannot recommend it enough! Thanks Leyton!
Here are my videos (links will get you to a page where you can read the poems as well).
“Babel” can be found in Ryan Van Winkle‘s collection Tomorrow, We Will Live Here.
Columbia University. In the middle of the night. On a brutally cold evening in December. I love this video.
“Necessary Astronomy” can be found in Ryan Van Winkle‘s collection Tomorrow, We Will Live Here.
In New York and featuring poems from Tomorrow, We Will Live Here, the new collection from Conneticut-born poet Ryan Van Winkle. This reading was shot at International House in Manhatten. Do any of you recognize the music?
I can’t seem to make the video work for below. But you can see me read if you follow the link…
In this video, Ryan reads “My 100-Hundred-Year-Old-Ghost” while on tour with The Golden Hour in London. A big thanks to Ericka Duffy for shooting the video.
