Saying shit I shouldn't since 1977.
What a great interview! Great stuff on translation, but I also like his positive take on the pluralities of poetry, community and the democratizing impulse in the poetry world. It's great to hear such a poet say he feels the pulse of poetry in America is strong. And it's great to hear him get behind the publication of poetry on the internet. And the part about the monkeys...yikes! I can see the box of monkeys. I must track down that monkey poem.
There are a lot of good poems in that book (Imagine the Angels of Bread). He also has a pretty recent selected, Alabanza.
