Poetry Sounds: Charles Wright, “Together”

Poetry Sounds is a segment at Tate Street High Society that features poets reading their work aloud.

Charles Wright, selected earlier this summer as United States Poet Laureate, reads “Together” for an interview with PBS News Hour (2011).  This poem felt just right as summer draws to a close.

Of his poetry he says, “It’s been a way of sustaining my questions about life and mortality and all those things that we don’t like to talk about, but they’re always there, you know, knocking on the window.”

If you prefer, you can read along as you listen to Wright conveniently here.
