I am listening to some of my recordings about women abuse and entertaining lucid dreams. They aren’t straightforward and sometimes I am acting. They feel very impressive although they are just the first draft. Listening to myself feels very difficult because my voice has a certain sort of resonance or vibration to it─this has been noticed by those who have come across me─ and its not just my smart approach and use of literary devices. Its very confusing hearing myself out because I end up sounding more creative when I am being spontaneous─I hope my eyes don’t fall out of my sockets; some of the recordings are really that fast. By the way, these recordings are a response to a comment by one of the judges whom I met at one of the events where I gave a performance. He told me that he felt very stupefied after hearing my poetry and then he commented, “I wonder how amazing you would sound if you were to act a little more spontaneous”.
