Listen to a Poem

SOUND’s audio-poem archive

strives to bring you poems read in voices unique to their authors. We believe that poetry is an intimate art, bodily, and specific to its creator just as dance and singing are. When a poet discovers the sounds, rhythms, and cadences of their own voice, they bring a distinct magic and a level of engagement between author and listener.

Note: Many audio poems appear here in their written forms, or included with Q&A articles.
