Heather Christle Will Read You a Poem

13 Jul

To celebrate the release of her new collection of poetry, The Trees The Trees, Heather Christle is reading poems by phone to anyone who calls 413-570-3077.

Tomorrow is the last day.

I just called myself over my lunch break. I didn’t know whether it was going to be reminiscent of my childhood public library’s Dial-a-Story, where you could call 448-1222, and listen to a recording of a librarian reading a children’s story.

It is not that. Heather herself answers, her voice alight like bubbles. You can choose a poem or not. She will read to you. It will be good. She read to me “The Plan,” and it was good. It made smiles on my face.

It could be this poem that was recently published at Everyday Genius.


Because we are mammals
we illuminate glasses of milk

We make wine and play the triangle
whose corners ring through us to the night

Read the rest of the poem at Everyday Genius.

    a new track called Theraflu’ and no fenders.
