Poetry on the Radio - by Rand

Warning: "Ceci n'est pas une poem."

I recently had the pleasure of being a guest on Burnham and Dodge's Art Hour over at Think Twice Radio. The topic of discussion was, of course, poetry. My fellow guest was Michael Basinski, poet and curator of the Univerisity at Buffalo's Poetry Collection.

It was, to quote our host, "a raucous, albeit obfuscatory conversation."

The episode in question is dated 3/9/11 and titled:

Eating poetry, Rumi, films about librarians, instapoems, and nether snaps




  1. I have tried twice to listen, and may keep trying, but 3-4 male voices at once was too trying for the brain to both parse and enjoy. Very cool that you and Mike got to be poet-librarians together, though!

  2. it did end up being a sort of "word jazz" after a while, didn't it?
