It's snowing. I'm heating black beans for lunch and listening to David Bowie's The Next Day. It's cold. I'm really hungry and the Bowie CD is excellent.
After a long hiatus at Ask/Tell I'm in the midst of working on a new interview--this time with a psychologist. Again, my open invitation: I'm looking for poets to do long, serious cross-disciplinary interviews. I'd like poets to interview artists, architects, musicians, dancers, philosophers, film makers, etc, etc, about the poetics of what they do. Poetry/poetics isn't just about communicating with other poets. And it isn't just academic.
I've been reading a lot of Renee Gladman's work lately. More about that to come.
Looks like the new Bernstein book will arrive today, as will William Gass's Middle C. I'm excited about both.
