Peter Murphy

My kind of sound poetry often involves variations on words or statements. I mix obvious jokes, metaphysical word games, one-actor mini-plays in which words break down with an exploration of how sound moves through the body and how the body moves with sound. In a number of poems over recent years, I've been exploring some of the small sounds in the voice which stand out when it isn't loud.
