One hour poem assignment: Success!

August 24, 2011

While editing segments at Milwaukee Public Radio, the producer Mitch Teich asked if I’d like come up with a poem regarding “Gastrointestinal Distress.” I said I had a great Pabst story, but assumed that wasn’t what he had in mind. Show topics included genetics, antibiotic vs probiotic, Chron’s Disease and modern health. I guessed, “So you need it…next week?” “It would air on tomorrow’s show” he answered. It was 2pm and show mixing begins at 3. Hm. An hour to research, write, and record a new poem. Hell yes I’m going to jump on random poem challenges. Here’s the finished result. Has a bit of a ‘Fireside Chats with Ed Makowski’ feel. Click and listen on the direct link below.
