Erotique Noire/Black Erotica
The week long food challenge got off to a rocky start because I failed to realise before the grocery store closed that I didn’t actually have any healthy food to cook. So I have no choice but to defer the start of the week long food challenge until tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’ve been reading and recording a few poems using Audioboo. I came across this simple way to record audio using my iPhone and then uploading for the world to listen to while at London Blogger Meetup a few weeks ago. There I met Blogger Radio Kate who works for Audioboo.
Based on our conversation and also reviews I subsequently read, thought I’d give this free audio service a try. And so far, I’m uploaded 8 boos. Below are two of my favourites.
The first is a reading of the poem: Gorgeous Pudding written by Ann T. Greene.
The second is a reading of the poem: From Teach Me by Michelle Renee Pichon.
Both of these I discovered while reading Erotique Noire/Black Erotica a collection of erotica poems and stories including works by Alice Walker, Ntozake Shange, and many more! This is a book I’ve had in my library for quite a few years and which I pull out when I want to impress a new love interest!
Anyway, thinking my reading of these poems while not brilliant is decent enough. So enjoy and check out my readings of other poems (not all have erotic overtones!).
