The 2012 Songs from Books of Poetry
So in 2012, as part of my year trying to not write poetry, I tried making songs out of books of poetry. It's all still one thing, I guess.
So anyway, I ended up with six.
"Come On All You Ghosts," derived from Matthew Zapruder's book, Come On All You Ghosts
"Next Life," derived from Rae Armantrout's book, Next Life
"A Joke I Keep Telling Myself" derived from Johannes Goransson's A New Quarantine Will Take My Place
"What's Amazing" derived from Heather Christle's book, What Is Amazing
"Your Father's On the Train of Ghosts" derived from the book Your Father on the Train of Ghosts by G.C. Waldrep and John Gallaher
