Why Do You Write Poetry? – Frank X. Walker

the-persistence-of-memory-1

Another month, another answer, hey? This time we’re favoured by US poet Frank X. Walker, whose Turn Me Loose: The Unghosting of Medgar Evers I was fortunate enough to read earlier this year. Great stuff – powerful, political historical poetry that’s contemporary and fresh and inspiring and frightening. You should check it out.

Frank has a short, but intriguing answer to the question, which relates to time. And when it comes to time, I tell you – I can relate.

Here’s Frank’s answer.

Tune in next month for another answer, or send your own to me at adamatsya AT gmail DOTT com.
