Performance Notes
The first part of a poem by Charles Wright from his collection The Other Side of the River. It's about Appalachia and so I got to use my accent.

I am a narrator, video and audio-producer based in Chicago, though I'm originally from the southern Appalachian Mountains. Midwestern accents, southern accents and all the accents in between are available if you need them. I am also a published fiction writer and as an author you have my sympathy and understanding. I want my voice to bring out all the voices in your work.
