Review of What is Poetry?

Barrett always amazes me with ability to take something that seems like a terrible idea on paper and craft it into something that works well on radio--often for the most undescribable reasons. This is an innovative use of both the music and the spoken word segment. The end effect is almost Zen-like, like chanting a mantra over and over. Yeah, I'd use this on the radio. I couldn't tell you why, but I'd definitely use it.
