Adam Clay on Linebreak

Clay's, "For the Weight of Gravity in Early Autumn" is up on my favorite new weekly poetry website. Why favorite? Because they work so hard to show us one poem in two forms that most poets work to keep separate; on the page and in the ears. Yes, we may all read our poetry aloud to whoever will listen, but by having someone outside the poems creation read the poem, it becomes performance.

Anyway, it's a great poem and an earnest reading, and you can see it all for yourself by clicking on the title of this post.
