You can hear me read and discuss my poem, "Mom Betty Addresses the Nature of Proportion" -- my "first 100% autobiographical poem." Thanks to POETRY FOUNDATION's "PoetryNow" series for making it happen, specifically Michael Slosek and producer Katie Slosin. I'm the Aug. 28, 2017 entry ... but if you click on link you'll see many other fabulous poets reading and discussing individual poems!

Katie also did a wonderful job melding the discussion with cello music, specifically "Crying Cello." So apt and respectful... which I needed because this poem is also about Mom.
