There is a recorded reading of my poem, “Lullacry,” on the Science Fiction and Poetry Association’s website as part of their Halloween Poetry Readings. I never like how my voice sounds recorded, but for this poem maybe the child like tones add something.
Note of interest—I read this poem in a deeper voice than I normally use to try and sound more ominous. Once again, I miss the mark. Listen to “Lullacry,” read by me, along with a nice selection of other Halloween inspired readings by poets by clicking this link.
