Through The Glass Darkly

In honor of National Poetry month I am posting a poetry video every day for the rest of April.  This is a video of Jamal May.  He is the author of Hum, The God Engine and The Whetting of Teeth.  This poem is a contrapuntal, which has to be crazy in the head of the reader, but sounds incredible.  I saw many of his videos on Youtube, but he also has a great website where you can read more of his poems.

  1. Great poem reading. A truth in so many lives. May they find rest.


  2. I love that you’re sharing these great performances… they’re beautiful and inspirational. And motivating and all the other words like that.


    1. :) Thank you for those favorable, encouraging, affirmative, and beautifully orange words.


      1. I stole your concept of beautiful words for Love letter #2, so I guess you could say it started out beautiful. :)


      2. You took some clumsy words about the concept of beautiful and turned them in to something actually beautiful. But you’re welcome ;)
