My 3 favorite audio clips from the Audio Video Library are:
"Up Here" by James Tate. I like "Up Here" because this poem is a love/romantic poem, which is why I like it. I like romantic poems because I love reading about couples and their relationships.
"The Interrogation" by Li Young Lee. "The Interrogation" is really heartbreaking, depressing, and sad which is why I'm really interested in it. He's talking about his childhood and how he remembers everything like how kids and adults got slaughtered and burned.
"Late in the Millennium", also by Li Young Lee, is a very touching and loving poem. The speaker is talking about his father who made him recite poems every month when he was a child and how he's become a poet. His father was his hero and when he recites poems he thinks of his father.
