How to Read a Poem—spoken poetry

 

To read a poem

take off your shoes,

loosen your tie and put down your watch,

prop up something soft in the small of your back

because poetry

is an intimation of a suggestion

about a potentiality

that may or may not exist

for you—

something dangerous, so you want

to be comfortable
