"My Seven-Season Friendship With a Russian Spy"

Poem and reading by Lynn McGee, Soundtrack by Bill Parod


"My Seven Season Friendship With a Russian Spy" is a 21-stanza poem from my manuscript, THE TV IN THE OTHER ROOM. This poem was inspired by the FX streaming series, The Americans, which features two KGB agents posing as a suburban couple outside Washington, D.C. The speaker in the poem relates to the tender-hearted husband, with his hazardous world, his yearning for love and his homesickness. Composer and violinist Bill Parod created a soundtrack that interacts with the poem in surprising ways. Thanks for listening!

Lesbian, Lynn McGee
