I’m so happy to see a re-run of my poem “Integrating the Shadow” at New World Review. This poem was originally published in Redheaded Stepchild and later appeared in my collection, I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast, as well as in Verse Daily, Recours au Poème, andIshaan Literary Review. I wrote this poem years ago, and I love to think of it out there now traveling around on its own.
She asked what I’d say to other writers, and I said, “You have the opportunity to thrill someone the way your favorite writers have thrilled you. You have the potential to be someone else’s favorite writer. Isn’t that wonderful?”
Thanks to Cindy Huyser for this interview and these great questions in preparation for tomorrow’s reading.
I’ll be at BookWoman in Austin at 7 PM tomorrow night!
Amazing, amazing, glorious beauty. Via Indiewire’s review, here is Dan Sickles’ lush, primeval, sensuous film interpretation of my short poem “I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast,” shot on location in Puerto Rico. And huge thanks to the good folks at Motionpoems & VIDA: Women in Literary Arts for making this happen!
