[CARRIE LORIG INTERVIEW RESPONSE]

*

carrie lorig has sent me one of the rawest video responses i’ve received

thank you, carrie

she poetically answers these questions with honesty & excitation

she wrote the book NODS, which is awesome - you should check it out

here are my favorite moments from the interview:

"I’m Carrie Lorig. I’m a name under the sand, or a bowl of pomegranates under the sand. I’m a blue leaf straying from the socket of a beast. I’m a jewel thief born from a light grave. I’m possibly something misread."

"I write every day, but I’m also writing when I am not writing."

"There’s no line between poetry & other kinds of language for me. The line is not buried; it’s not hidden; it’s not an invisible fence. It just doesn’t exist. I use poetry to say hello; I use it to touch you; I use it to talk about weather while eating fries on the forgotten coast […] It is the way I am the most alive as myself, & it is the way I’m most able to love & be with others."

"My approach is to be constant, to be attentive, to always be wide & aware & looking for potential, for possibility. My approach is to never not be a poet."

"There was pineapple beer there, & it was exactly good."

"It was right to touch so many things."

"Poems are capable of going where is necessary & urgent."

"I believe in monsters."

"The internet is one of the most important forces that poetry has behind it. Period."

"Any kind of energy that I have behind me as a poetry comes mostly from the internet."

"The internet can be a place where abuses of power get checked."

"I am laying down on a cliff at the ghost ranch."

big time yes

ratrapss asked: WHO ARE YOU YOU MYSTERIOUS FOX

thestrangestfox:

Well, once I was from New York, and then I was from Maine, now I am from California. The inside of my childhood home was destroyed by a fire this week, so I feel even more like a mystery fox than usual. I poet in many places. I am in a gang of cats, lost shoes and hot babes. That’s as much as I will say presently -
