I wish most of the poets featured here would speak louder. I have not been able to hear a lot of the poems very clearly because they speak soft or muffled, with a few exceptions. This one wasn't clear either. Sorry, if it sounds rude, but it kind of defeats the purpose.

I didn't have any problem hearing him.
Its not CLEAR. I couldn't understand a thing he was saying. And I've had the same issue with several others, though the one yesterday with the lady was VERY CLEAR.
