dc.description.abstractThis episode of our podcast features three runners-up in the Voice-only poetry category of our 2007 Audio Competition. In 'The Golden lesson,' second runner-up Susan Somers-Willet gives an engaging performance of a poem rich in painterly image and metaphor, a poem both complex in its ideas, and visceral in its textures. The third runner-up of the Voice-only poetry category is Eric Torgersen with 'Taking tickets.' The poem defies easy classification--but we're sure you'll find this voice-driven poem, with its quirky character, entertaining. And we conclude with the fourth runner-up, Josh McDonald's 'Women in strange trousers,' a prose poem about females attired in an assortment of odd apparel--Publisher's Web siteeng
