Reading of Ilya Kaminksy’s “Maestro”

Have you followed me on Soundcloud? I’ve begun a process of reading favorite poems (mostly from contemporary poets) there. Recently I did a reading of Ilya Kaminsky, whom I had the great honor of seeing in person at a reading in LA.  Kaminsky is a Russian immigrant whose poems deal often with the traumas of his native land, and he’s attained success incredibly early in life because his work absolutely bleeds power and music. I read “Maestro”, the third poem in his Dancing in Odessa collection, which he signed for me.
