I’m not BFF’s with Siri, but sometimes I do like to have things read to me by my computer. So when I finished reading Michael Sacasas’ post about psycho dad videos and performative parenting, I wanted to read the rest of W.H. Auden’s “The Shield of Achilles”. And then I wanted to hear it, so I had the text-to-voice synth Alex read the poem, too.
And for no particular reason, I’ve put it online.
