green_space w/Jay Besemer

Had the intensely good opportunity to interview Jay Besemer for green_space. Jay Besemer’s outlook on being with the world, changing through language, and negotiating the event while foregrounding the needs of the body feel absolutely essential. green_space is delighted to present our interview with Jay. And a surprise reading of the poem (“The Wound”) that saved me from the pandemic. Here’s the interview.
