Wednesday Poetry Break: Video version

Here’s a lovely treat that I stumbled upon this morning. Cartoonist Lynda Barry talking about and singing poetry.  It’s about 8 minutes long, but worth every second, I promise.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

(And just who is Lynda Barry? She is the author of the most awesome-est cartoon ever: Ernie Pook’s Comeek, and the online Marlys Magazine.)



  1. I can’t stop singing to the tune of “Girl from Ipanema”:

    I felt a Cleaving in my Mind –
    As if my Brain had split –
    I tried to match it – Seam by Seam –
    But could not make them fit.
