A little bit ago I posted about a wonderful latino poet, Jimmy Santiago Baca. Here is a link to some of his poetry from a performance he gave in 2000 at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL.
I am so taken by the passion, intensity and conviction expressed as he recites his readings...and realize that this "voice" isn't too far astray from the one I use...my own inner coach.
His recital is available for download at this site. My favorites are What Kind of Poem Is Appropriate?, Grandma, Little Girl and Parting Words. He is so moving and inspirational!
Definitely someone who sets Sparks a-flying!
