Horror & Nativity: New Interview at Gazing Grain Press

Over at Gazing Grain Press (an inclusive feminist chapbook series), Siwar Masannat and I talked about the epic, humor, politics, and repetition in my (free and not free) chapbook Post Nativity, which sits at the big fat heart of my next book from Black Ocean Press, The Cathedral Tent. Here is some thing I said:

“In this sense I’d like to think of the poem less as subsuming its subjects into a crystalline structure and more subsumed by the process of trying to hold so much together. More Akira, less The Blob.”

Thanks to Siwar and the staff at GGP for the occasion. Looks like their first chapbook, The Busy Life, is alive!
