Wow! I heard Matthew Dickman read "All American Poem" in Stayton, Oregon, a few months ago, but I really didn't hear it. Here at home, with just me and Puffy on the bed, I want everyone to hear his poem . . . his wonderful poem.
I love Matthew Dickman's poems. "Slow Dance" was the first poem I read of his (some time back) and hearing him read it aloud tonight was a real treat. His voice made a difference in how I experienced the poem and saw the images.
