I have a sensation or sentence in mind and then I try to exhaust everything using that kernel (and with everything I primarily mean myself, but also our entire culture, it’s a futile idea no doubt). – Poetry Foundation
I’m not all that interested in ‘innovative’ poetry. To me it usually denotes a kind of high culture, high taste label. And also a sense of linear futurity that I think is not only boring but oppressive. I’m far more interested in the degraded and anachronistic, the trashy and the melancholic…In my mind art is very violent, but that’s not separate from the narrative. It’s in the very conflict within the artwork… – from 3:am Magazine Interview
In summation, from Dear Ra:
I’ve been confused when I should have been
reborn as a crusade or a hospital of innocents.
I’ve been bored when I should’ve been screwed.
I’ve been a hungry year.
