Along with a very strong cup of Starbucks coffee---I'm not telling how many scoops I load into the machine---I love to start my day with poetry. The fact that I can bring Anne Sexton into my bedroom to read "Her Kind" while I drink my French Roast is just one of life's glorious and surreal moments. Poets.org has an excellent collection of recorded poems. From their website: "Beginning with John Berryman’s historic first reading of The Dream Songs on Halloween night, 1963, the Academy of American Poets has presented and recorded over 700 poetry readings, lectures, and symposia, making the Poetry Audio Archive one the world's richest aural records of poetry."
