Episode 020: Cymbal and Drum - Metronaut

These two poems go together quite well, I think, so for this week I offer you another Twofer: "Cymbal and Drum" and "Metronaut," both inspired by my time spent commuting in and out of Washington, D.C. on the Metro System. Though these take a slightly different tack than did "Ecologies of Scale," heard in a previous episode but inspired by that same commute. I also experimented a little with some audio editing underneath "Metronaut," curious to hear if you think it worked, maybe I'll get fancy again in the future.

Hey, I'd love to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.

After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:

Donate to Black Lives Matter

Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center

Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative

Transgender Law Center

The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
