Pronunciation

Exploring poetry in all its forms.

My parents were both from northeastern Pennsylvania.

I’ve lived in New York since I was around

Three and a half years old.

I’d always had a hard core

Pennsylvania accent growing up.

I was the only kid in Queens, and on Long Island,

With a Pennsylvania accent.

I was never quite the same

As the other young uns.

I’ve never been quite the same

In general anyway.

I’ve always pronounced things differently.
