Decisions, Decisions – Poetry Reading by Marcus J King

Watch the August 2016 Poetry Reading.


Performed by actor Julian Ford

Get to know the poet:

1) What is the theme of your poetry collection?

The theme of the poem is a maze to get out of “something”

2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

I would love for people to think about the direction they are going in and when they get to the ending, laugh, and go back and decide if they actually made a wrong turn.

3) How long have you been writing poetry?

I have been writing poetry for about 3 years now.

4) Do you have a favorite poet?

My favorite poet is Thomas Hardy; Having to do a essay on him opened my eyes to poetry and the different depth it can go.

5) What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

I was browsing some other writers work on Reader. They use a feature called recommended blogs that to relate to mine. I stumbled upon WILDsound and I wanted to reach more people to be noticed in the writing community.

6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?

My other works are fiction; 2 novels; 1 of them is soon to be published in 2017; short stories; and of course poetry. I am getting into memoirs as well.

7) What is your passion in life?

My passion is write and tell a story that speaks to the heart to make you feel some type of way whether happy, sad, or in between.
