MOUTH MUSIC

  Poems and Prose Poems

                    by

        Dudley Laufman

 

Dudley Laufman has his own way of making music with words and words into dance and song. For him it's always been one thing: the music, the movement, the poetry. Here we have poem and song lyric and story and myth. The words are by turns elegiac, celebratory, raucous, randy, funny...

Marie Harris, New Hampshire Poet Laureate, 1999-2004
