When / why did you start writing poetry? – answers in adjectives
In my 20s
A calling from a higher awareness
Best medium for my creativity
Sorrow and sadness
How do you write a poem? – answer in five verbs.
The poem writes me
With the help of music
The beautiful muse inspires me
In one sitting then edit later
Some poems are fermented for months like fine wine
What is your definition of what experimental poetry is?
It’s about taking poetry to another sensory level using visual, touch, sound. Taking the reader out of their comfort zone and being freed from the restrictiveness of rhyme and meter. If you look at the cubism movement of the early 20th century pioneered by Picasso and Braque they elevated painting to another dimension, by changing the way artists painted. This early 21st century is perhaps doing the same for poetry. I would like to see someone create a sculpture of a poem, the mind boggles at endless possibilities of a hybrid poem/statue and what it would look like. Maybe this will be the next challenge for my sculptor friend, Ian Pollock!
Have you done many interviews before? Do you find them repetitive? Repetitive? Repetitive?
Nah, I enjoy doing them. It’s enjoyable to be able to give your thoughts on writing and to share with others how you came to be a poet. I’m currently doing three others for various blogs. Essentially they are poetic related interviews and I don’t give much away about who I am personally. I’m doing them because I’m promoting my debut pamphlet Under A Mind’s Staircase.
What’s a favorite snack you like when poet-ing?
Tayto, Chocolate & Coca-Cola. This also goes for movies and any programs on telly.
What are you kinda obsessed by?
Do you tell your social circle about your poet-ing?
“Oh have you heard my poem got published!
So basically no!
How do you rebel?
Within my poetry.
Tell me a literary / science fact or joke, please.
You can have two writers jokes:
What’s it like to be an aspiring writer? It’s difficult to put into words.
How many writers does it take to change a light bulb? Fuck you, I’m not changing anything!
What’s your fav colour, poet, snack. (this is your pen name!)
