Before I introduce today’s spoken word poem I would like to encourage people to subscribe to The Australian Writers Centre podcast “So You Want to be a Writer”. The two hosts are fantastic and they feature so excellent writers from all parts of the field. This week they celebrate one year of the podcast. Visit them.
This spoken word poem comes from Russian poet Lev Brekhman. His poetry is wonderful and evocative. He has a friend, Liam Owen, read the poems in English and Liam does a great job putting emotion and authority into his performance making the poem easy to hear and appreciate.
