CA Conrad interview by Eileen Myles at poetry foundation site

Lots of good things in this interview of CA Conrad by Eileen Myles at the Poetry Foundation website, but here's one of my favorite quotes (among many many):

I want poetry to be the world film can’t access but thinks it can. Film wants to dictate images, where poems give the reader’s mind the space to create their own world, their own film.

Reading it makes me even more excited for Monday. It'll be a bit of a drive to go see him read out in good ol' western Mass, but worth it. I'll listen to this song that just popped up on my Pandora during my drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOuXfo4yQno
