Henry Taylor, E. Ethelbert Miller, Ann Darr and Hilary Tham, four Washington, D.C. area poets who started with publishing their work in small presses, talk about the value of that enterprise to keep literature alive. They also discuss the value of poetry slams, and the inspiration for their work. Darr reads “Log Book Turned to Feathers,” “Everything I Ever Flew is Obsolete,” and “Orders.” Miller reads “In Small Town USA,” “Faith: My Brother Returns Home from the Monastery,” and “When Allende Was Alive.” Tham reads “If It Tastes Terrible It Must Be Good for You,” “The Days of Some Lives are Long,” and “Dream Man Ken.” Taylor reads “Hawk,” “To My Favorite Hostess,” and “Grace.” Recorded in 1994.
