Voicing someone else's poems

In Nokturno's series "In Another's Voice" I read six wonderful poems from Mark Young's "Series Magritte". This was my first time reading to a microphone without being in front of an immediate audience; and these readings are the first and only takes. Next time I'll know to turn down the volume a little bit and work more with the subtler tones. Another thing I noticed is that it was more pleasant to read someone else's poems than your own, in this way, by yourself, to an audience not yet present.

I also read this poem by e. e. cummings. My reading is dedicated and most meaningful to Brad Andrew Davis, who at this moment is living either in the States or in Argentina.

Hei, I gave you a clue to the first question.
The answer to the second question can change depending on the moment in which it is asked.

I know, "the".
California? It can't be some small place in New Mexico.

Yes with the scrub oaks. Thanks again for the poem.
