Matt Proctor reads from City Life

 

Matt Proctor’s diary, City Life, spans from March to May of this year so it is hot off the presses, and full of little axiom poems that I enjoy:

 

thought is
a mirror

it shows
you who
you are

my left
side is my
good side


the fact
of the matter
is

a walk
is a poem

here comes one
now

 

it’s dark inside
god’s fist

 

When I heard Matt read from City Life at KGB not too long ago, I asked if I could record him for the blog. At Saint Mark’s Church on Wednesday shortly before the poetry reading he was helping to coordinate, the sun was beginning to set and shone on him with its changing light and shadow as he read, all for you on the Vimeo below.
