Trevor Root: I’m curious about the expectations you set for both pickles & jams and fukc all the king’s men: the tower and a few beasts living in its rubble. In the acknowledgements for each you lay out a terminology for the poems: “occasional poems” for p&j and “speculative poems” for fatkm.

Interview with Lawrence Upton

[The discussion took place through 2009 and the first part of 2010 and would have been continued face to face in Ohio after the last post_moot if things had gone according to plan.

The discussion is clearly incomplete.]
