Planting Consent: Sunday poem and discussion
"What of the idea of a poem that is both earnest and consoling yet sly and self-aware, fully conscious that you shouldn’t trust it despite how it aspires to soothe? That seems like something worthwhile to consider ‘in these times.'"
My poem, "Planting Consent" is featured on Coach House Books's Sunday Poem. I write about the poem and discuss springtime, David W. McFadden, antennae, birds, mentors, clouds, consolation, Chomsky, and Hamilton, Ontario.
