Read·a·long with R.A. Smith

My prompt inspired poem, She Waits, went up on Nina D’Arcangela’s blog for the Ladies of Horror Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge. You can find the poem here.

But wait! There’s more… You can also hear native Australian (and my hubby) read She Waits on the player below.

    Love Ryan’s voice (natch!) and his reading is smooth, cryptic and clear –adding to the shock. Please tell him BRAVO for me. I have a pet peeve about most people reading poetry — their voices fall into the same cadence for every poem, which often ruins the poem and they don’t see that.

    When I say “Cryptic” I meant with ominous or sinister suggestion — putting “clear” with that might be misleading but I meant his voice and enunciation are clear.
