Dear Reader of the Future
Not sure if anyone will find this as amusing as I do, but my good friend Robert Moore, a very fine poet and all-around mensch, sent me a doctored mp3 of his poem "Dear Reader of the Future." It's a recording he did for inclusion on a complimentary CD that will be offered to buyers of his new book, Figuring Ground, at its launch in April. "With my voice adjusted," Robert says " I think I sound a bit like Elizabeth Bishop reading the poem in 1965, hailing us from the past."
