In celebration of National Poetry Month and APIA Heritage Month this year, we have started a two-month Monday Morning series in which we will be sharing an audio recording of a different poem that has moved, challenged, or stuck with us each week.
Today’s Monday Morning Poem features a version of a piece that actually appeared in Issue 2 of Lantern Review. Aryanil Mukherjee reads from his series “honeycomb scriptures,” beginning with the poem “honeycomb scriptures :: world granulated,” which later appeared in LR. (Via PennSound‘s archives).
Mia and I both love the ‘rubbly’ translucence and impermanence of the images in “world granulated,” so we were excited to run across this recording, in which we get to hear the poem contextualized within the series to which it belongs. We hope you enjoy it, too:
To listen via streaming audio, click the link above, which will take you to Mukherjee’s page on PennSound, and then scroll down to the recording (the second one listed under “Poetry in the Garden at the Cincinnati Public Library”).
Or, to retrieve and open the file directly on your computer’s media player software, click here.
If you’d like to follow along as you listen, the version of “world granulated” that appeared in LR can be found here.
