My friend and fellow poet Harry E. Northup scores another hit with this video reading of one of his poetic homers (gotta listen to the end):

Dear Michael,
I'm grateful, not only for your own splendid poetry, but for your support of mine.

I doubt I would have "gotten" the poem by just reading it. But, after Harry's impeccable reading I slapped my forehead and and emitted a hearty "Doh". Thanks for sharing that.

Vice versa Harry. And Willy, well put.

Harry is always surprising, exciting, yet inevitable like the ending of a good poem. So wonderful, not only to hear Harry's sonic imagination, but also the profound and beautiful tribute to Paul Blackburn, whom we don't think of and thank often enough. sincerely, Diane Wakoski

Diane, Some folks in recent years came down on Paul for some of his behavior and beliefs in his private life. But he was always an inspiration to me in the poetry arena.
