Kyle McCord on his book, somewhere in Arkansas

Kyle ghosted me on my tour this summer. Or I ghosted him. Either way, he was there at the beginning to do some readings with me. We crossed paths, serendipitously, in Lincoln, NE three weeks later. And he was reading with me for the final reading in DC.

Sympathy from the Devil was the thing rolling Kyle around the country. SftD is his third book of poems. I asked him some questions about it while we drove through the Middle South. If these sentences read as unaffected it is because I am exhausted from this tour. I expect to be exhausted for the next five to six years. Kyle’s book is whole megatons of fantastic.
