Poetry Reading – One Thing Left In Oklahoma by Carolyn Reese

Poem performed by Michelle Alexander

Get to know the poet:

What is the theme of your poem?

Lost love?

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

I’d like for them to want it to be sung or put to music.

How long have you been writing poetry?

.Since I was nine years old.

Do you have a favorite poet?

Emily Dickinson/ee cummings

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

My script entry had its chops busted and was refused for performance, so I thought I would try a poem.

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

I write scripts but am probably going to take all the scripts I have written and turn them into or back in to short stories since they don’t seem to impress anyone.

What is your passion in life?

To be paid regularly for fiction I write. I would say writing but I am going to write no matter what, if it isn’t excepted, if it isn’t liked so maybe my passion is more like a goal.
