Below you will find a video of me reading ‘Slow Sleepwalk into Armageddon.’ This is the opening poem from The Anthropocene Hymnal, and it expresses my frustration at our apparent inability to see the havoc we are wreaking on our home planet. It is becoming harder and harder to sleepwalk, however, with catastrophic climate events recurring with a frightening regularity.
I am sharing this poem with dVerse Open Link Night. Tonight it’s the live edition, hosted by Sanaa. You are invited to join in and read a poem of your own. The bar opens at 3pm EST, and the link to the live event will be posted on the dVerse site. I hope to see you there! Please also check out my son Benji’s post: in which he reads his first ever published poem!
