Audio Blog: "Misdirection"

After almost five years, I have a new audio blog!  Well, it's mostly just me reading a poem, but I might be starting a new audio series... perhaps.  We'll see.

Let me know what you think.  I realize I'm not very good at this, but I have approximately zero experience reading for an audience.

Mental Lorica: "Misdirection"
If any of you didn't see it, my poem "Grief Tickles like a Hammer" appeared in Sparks of Calliope last month.  You can read it here. 

I won't be blogging (probably) for a couple weeks as I'm going through a scan on Tuesday.  I know everyone has their own troubles right now, but please send me positive vibes... if possible.


  1. I think you did a fine job on the reading, though it did feel like it cut off abruptly. You might consider putting a closer on future ones. Just a "thanks for listening" or something so it feels less abrupt.

    I liked the poem in Sparks of Calliope. Especially "winter’s bite/leaves teeth marks/on our bones"

    Here's hoping your scan results are helpful! @samanthabwriter from

    1. I wasn't sure whether to add a closing because I didn't know if it would be mistaken for part of the poem, even if I paused. I'm afraid of being corny and saying "the end" after a piece. lol

      Thank you for listening. And yes, my scan came back clear!
