A tribute to Jackson Mac Low´s “Forties”

I was asked by NY-based publisher Counterpath to contribute, among other 150 poets, to a tribute to Jackson Mac Low. Each of us was assigned one poem from Mac Low´s “Forties” that she/he should read and send them. I was asked to do the poem “93”.
I contributed by rewriting the original poem into English phonetic transcription and made a video of it combined with my reading.
