Me Who? Exactly What?

Posted by


This is a poetry read of a Shel Silverstein poem, entitled “The Meehoo with an Exactlywatt” and I read it for the “Poetry Reading” audio assignment. I like this poem because it reminds me of how homophonic the English language is, which just makes it all the more confusing. (From a Linguistic point of view, English is a baffling language.) I see it as a story in an abstract sense. I see the cyclical nature of the poem, and relate that to the cycle of life, which to me is always a story–the poem begins and ends with a similar “Knock, knock” phrase. To complete this assignment, I recorded myself on Audacity reading this poem (a confusing sounding poem, it’s actually easier to read, that to listen to), exported it, and uploaded it to my SoundCloud. Lemme know whatchu think about that.
