Bandit

4/5/2018
More
Anita Barton-Williams and Anna Kahn talk with Joshua Judson about his poem, Bandit. We try (and fail) to focus exclusively on sound, because meaning is just so interesting. We talk consistent metaphor, aligning the rhythym of our words with the soundscape we’re trying to capture, how much specificity is the right amount of specificity, and whether sheep are fundamentally interchangeable.

Episode 9: A Collection Of Grey Thoughts

1/17/2018
More
We talk with Malakaï Sargeant and Bayan Goudarzpour about Malakaï’s poem ‘A Collection Of Grey Thoughts’. We talk how much of yourself you owe to the poem, how to work out what it is you’re not saying, how to stop individual things from feeling disparate. We use Stephanie Rogers’ boss poem Fat Girl Ghazal as a reference - you can read it in Copper Nickel and check out her other stuff on her website.

Malakaï Sargeant and Anna Kahn talk with Bayan Goudarzpour about her poem ‘Dear Jolene’. We talk about expanding each thought in a poem, adding structure to longer pieces (through form? through repetition?), about Bayan’s guilty pleasure love of the excellent book-buying human that is Dolly Parton, and about what the word ‘auburn’ actually means.

We talk about balancing opinion and image, whether or not it’s easier to make a sonnet out of something that already exists, what counts as England, which Englands we see and how they are shaped in poetry, adding lightness to a poem, and leaning in to the things we’re really trying to say.
